Very exciting senior care news…

Today, in Washington, D.C., PBS and the Scan Foundation (health insurance for the 65+ crowd) host a conversation about long-term care models from around the world.  Panelists will discuss the possibility of successfully implementing some of these models, as well as regional ones, across the U.S. The taping event is sold out but keep your eyes open for the air date. Wish I could be there!

Here is the official announcement:

The PBS NewsHour’s Hari Sreenivasan will lead an exploration of long-term care, from across the global village to Main Street U.S.A. After looking at different models for providing long-term care and benefiting from expert commentary, the event will aim to answer the question: can what works there, work here?

The conversation will feature:

An interview with Dr. Bruce Chernof, President & Chief Executive Officer of The SCAN Foundation and former chair of the federal Commission on Long-Term Care
Video and expert discussion of models for long-term care, including examples from California, Minnesota, Washington, D.C., Finland and Taiwan
We will be joined by:

Dr. Laura N. Gitlin, Director, Center for Innovative Care in Aging, Johns Hopkins University
Howard Gleckman, Resident Fellow, The Urban Institute
Jennie Chin Hansen, Chief Executive Officer, American Geriatrics Society
Dr. Mark McClellan, Director, Health Care Innovation and Value Initiative, The Brookings Institution
Dr. E. Percil Stanford, President, Folding Voice LLC
Debra Bailey Whitman, Executive Vice President, Policy, Strategy and International Affairs, AARP
