All of the usual topics of long-term care leadership and caregiving will be covered deftly and in-depth, but next week’s annual meeting of the American College of Health Care Administrators will be remarkable for something else: the group’s 50th anniversary. Veteran reporter and publishing icon Rona Barrett will deliver a “Nothing but the truth” keynote address Saturday afternoon, while former Dallas Cowboys player Everson Walls will headline Monday afternoon with “Putting your team first.”

The golden anniversary celebration kicks off next Friday and lasts through the following Tuesday (May 8) at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville. More than 60 hours of educational sessions and continuing education credits will be offered. An exhibit hall will be open around the lunch hours Sunday and Monday.
