Long-term care operators and top managers will be making their way to Phoenix this weekend through Wednesday to attend the 64th annual AHCA/NCAL exhibition and expo. Hosted by the largest nursing home association in the country, the AHCA show will feature dozens of opportunities to earn continuing education credit through educational sessions; top keynote speakers; and an expansive exhibit hall that opens for a total of six and a half hours Monday and Tuesday.

The opening keynote speaker is Benjamin Carson, M.D., a full professor in a handful of medical specialties at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine; an author and accomplished speaker; and named one of the 20 foremost physicians in the world by CNN and Time magazine. The closing keynote speaker is Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who has held that office since 2008 and dealt with various disaster and healthcare emergencies while being characterized as a rising star within the Republican Party.
