The National Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence (NHCGNE) is hosting their annual Leadership Conference on November 12-13, 2019 and will be held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX.

Here are four good reasons you need to attend!
- NHCGNE’s Leadership Conference attendees are a virtual “who’s who” of gerontological nursing. The biggest names in gerontological nursing will be joining us, and you will have access to them in a personal setting; You will hear firsthand about the research that is going on now and find out how you can implement it into practice.
- Have an opportunity to have a discussion with the Administrator of HRSA. Hear firsthand what is going on at HRSA and participate in the Q&A session!
- The Leadership Conference gives you a chance to meet more professionals in geriatrics, and in related fields, who you can stay connected with and possibly collaborate with in the future. It’s not just nurses; NHCGNE’s Leadership Conference is interprofessional in nature, with social workers, psychologists, doctors and more as speakers and attendees. There is real opportunity for collaboration.
- You will hear first-hand about the research that is going on now and find out how you can implement it into practice.
The objectives of the conference are to:
- Raise awareness of opportunities to participate in NIH FOA initiatives supporting PWD such that research evidence from modest advances in therapeutic and preventive strategies might be better communicated and utilized across disciplines.
- Strengthen participants in the rigorous design, execution, analysis and reporting of quality data supporting non-pharmacological interventions for persons from diverse communities with dementia (PWD).
- Assist early career attendees in orchestrating full research careers in aging and caregiving for PWD through mentoring activities targeting early career paired with senior scientists.
