On Thursday, October 21, 2021, Rothkoff Law Group will host our 4th Annual Elder Care Symposium from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. The topic for this year’s virtual event is Lessons Learned from COVID-19. The agenda includes a keynote address, breakout sessions, and a panel discussion. Professionals who work with older adults and family members of senior-aged loved ones will have valuable networking opportunities and unprecedented access to critical information regarding elder care issues.
The Symposium will take a hard look at the current healthcare system for seniors and address how to change it for the better. This unique event will be easily accessible to attendees throughout the United States and around the world via a proprietary virtual event platform that utilizes intuitive software to recreate physical events through an immersive 3D experience.
In addition to the live presentations, Symposium attendees can visit the interactive exhibit hall and engage with 60 vendors who work with seniors through real-time text, audio, or video chats in either a group or private one-on-one setting.
Proceeds from the Symposium will benefit the HFC organization. Founded in 2012 by Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen, the national non-profit’s mission is to care for families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, inspire the next generation of Alzheimer’s advocates, and be leaders in brain health research and education. The Rothkoff team is proud that the HFC team will be attending virtually and will be doing meet and greets with attendees.
This year’s keynote address will be presented by Dr. Jason Karlawish, an author, professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and co-director of the Penn
Memory Center. He will discuss the topic of his recent book, The Problem of Alzheimer’s: How It Became a Crisis and What We Have to Do. He will also discuss the recent FDA approval of the Alzheimer’s medication, Aduhelm, and the controversy surrounding its approval. The first 100 registered attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Karlawish’s book. Additionally, there will be a panel discussion on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Senior Care: Challenges and Solutions, moderated by Bryan J. Adler, Esq., CELA, as well as breakout sessions on pain management in the elderly, use of virtual reality with seniors, and a presentation by Eloy van Hal, founder of the original Dementia Village in the Netherlands, discussing the future of long-term care.
We are eager to have the opportunity to expand our audience and our leadership role in the industry in this new virtual format. Symposium attendees will be eligible for four Continuing Education (CE) credits per person.
