The Evolution of Healthcare

Join us to hear two perspectives on the changing landscape of healthcare. How are hospital systems and physicians adapting to changes impacting the geriatric population? Just a few of the topics to be discussed are:

  • Transitions of care throughout the continuum

  • Working with community resources to improve health outcomes

  • Thinking outside the box
