Building Resilience in Aging: Perspectives for Patients, Care Partners, and Communities

Keynote Speakers:
Luci Leykum, MD, MBA, MSC, Director, VA Elizabeth Dole Center of Excellence for Veteran and Caregiver Research

Kevin Duff, PhD, Professor of Neurology, Oregon Health & Science University

We invite professionals across health care disciplines and geriatric fields to join us to learn about cutting edge research and interventions to build resiliency amongst patients, care partners, and clinicians and to address the complex needs of older adults with aging related conditions.
Participants will leave the conference with practical tools to provide and optimize safe, effective, and patient-centered care. They will discover how to operationalize and integrate best practices and emerging research findings into health systems to identify the goals of patients, promote physical function, address cognitive health, and to provide care partners connections to VA and community health systems support and resources. They also will learn about system-level and policy factors related to resilience in aging.
