Chair: Joanne Lynn, MD

Finally, policymakers and the press are beginning to take notice of the serious shortcomings in providing for elderly people in need of personal care and support, but we are far from public action.  This session will share information among attendees as to the most important policy levers, how to take action, and what's happening in participants' localities.  We'll deal with food and housing, and personal care -- as well as geriatric medicine and how we fit into the various Medicare/Medicaid "innovations."
