The Future of Home Health Symposium - September 9, 2015

The Alliance is proud to introduce the Northeast Regional Future of Home Health Symposium, “Preparing for the Future of Home and Community-Based Care,” Wednesday, September 9 from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm ET in New York City at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Metropolitan – New York City. As part of the Alliance’s Future of Home Health (FOHH) Project, the Northeast Regional Future of Home Health Symposium will continue building upon the themes and ideas discussed at the Fall 2014 IOM Future of Home of Home Health Care Workshop.

Thought leaders from across the care continuum will talk to the challenges and opportunities facing home health care now and in the future. The Alliance will also host a cocktail reception the evening prior for speakers and attendees.
