A catalyst in transforming and enhancing the experience of aging, LeadingAge Minnesota, the state partner of LeadingAge, is shaping the future of aging services through its 60,000 caregivers and 1,100 members to provide quality, compassionate care to 70,000 older adults in the places they call home. Learning and networking ties into one of their top priorities – professional development, delivering unmatched value in cutting-edge education to improve practices. Throughout September and October, they will be sending out communications to their network of members and caregivers about the MedFuse 2019 conference.
“ Association events are one of the highest values of membership. We learn from the best-of-the-best in our field. We network. We collaborate. We return to our organizations inspired, empowered and ready to create lasting positive change.” Erin Hilligan, Vice President of Operations at Ebenezer (LeadingAge member)
Learning and networking is at the heart of MedFuse.
