Influential women discuss aging

Here is an announcement for a great sounding forum and webcast this Friday, April 13, from 2:00 to 4:30pm, sponsored by the Altarum Institute, entitled "The Last Word: Influential Women Discuss What Matters When Loved Ones Face Aging."  A summary:

Altarum Institute invites you to a unique gathering of prominent and influential female authors, each of whom has written about their personal experiences caring for a loved one in the final phase of life. Combining elements of an informal book club meeting and an intriguing policy seminar, guest authors Eleanor Clift, Muriel Gillick, Jane Gross, Susan Jacoby, and Joanne Lynn will speak about their work, experiences and compelling stories that led to publications with profound implications for public policy. Their books range from practical, hands-on advice for caregivers, patients, and families to discussions of the political, social, and cultural ramifications of a fragmented health and social service system. Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Ellen Goodman will moderate the panel discussion.

This will be at the Pew Charitable Trusts Conference Center in Washington, DC.  But you can also join by webcast.  Register here.
