Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving 31st Annual Summit

Thursday, October 25, 2018, 11:30 PM

For 31 years, the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving has supported the family, volunteer, and professional caregivers through efforts of advocacy, education, research, and service. We believe it is empowering to not only be educated on the issues surrounding caregivers, but it is also extremely important for caregivers to get help, take care of themselves, know how to plan for the future and have their voices heard. This one day conference will explore ways to empower caregivers who are caring for others with diverse chronic illnesses and disability across the lifespan. Our audience of family and professional caregivers, service providers, and volunteers will hear from experts on topics that are on every caregiver's mind. The Gala Awards Banquet on Friday evening will be complete with a formal dinner and the announcement of our Caregivers of the Year, the Mattie J.T. Stepanek scholarship winners, and the Rosalynn Carter Leadership in Caregiving Award. Seating is limited for ALL Summit events - seats are on a first come, first serve basis. Registration is MANDATORY for ALL events. Attendees MUST register through EventBrite if planning to attend any of the Summit events. We hope you'll join us for this celebration of Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter's vision! FAQs What are my transportation options for getting to and from the event? We will provide a shuttle bus for hotel guests to and from Networking Reception and Gala Dinner events. The in-town bus schedule will be sent to you via email prior to your arrival. If you opt to drive a rental car down instead, you will still be able to take the in-town shuttle back and forth to events if you desire. YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THIS OPTION. Where can I stay? The shuttle bus will only pick up and drop off at these locations.  Windsor Hotel Hampton Inn Days Inn Econo Lodge What about food?

No. However, we do offer contact hours from Georgia Southwestern State University awarded through a certificate of participation.
