CHRISTY DAVIS SELECTED TO ATTEND INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL ON ACTIVE AGING “THINK TANK” FORUM IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
JOINS 60 GLOBAL LEADERS PARTICIPATING TO BRAINSTORM CHALLENGES FACING TODAY’S ACTIVE AGING INDUSTRY
(April 05, 2016) As a respected thought leader within the aging industry, Christy Davis will attend the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) Forum May 4th in Washington, D.C. on behalf of HealthPRO®/Heritage. The bi-annual forum brings together thought leaders from health care, wellness and technology organizations to discuss pressing issues facing the ever-evolving “active aging” industry.
Launched more than 10 years ago, the meetings forge connections among industry leaders while promoting understanding and cohesive action around the ultimate goal: health and quality of life as people age. The forum is also dedicated to forming a think tank to develop strategies that will turn the challenges facing senior living providers into opportunities.
“Active aging means living your life to its fullest – no matter your age. As an organization that’s mission is to make this goal achievable for all adults over the age of 50 around the world, the opportunity to have the top minds in the industry together in one room is an important moment for us, “ said Colin Milner, CEO of ICAA. “We use these sessions to set our priorities and problem solve on behalf of the industry to achieve our goals to change the way we age for the better.”
The theme for this session is focused on the future of technology for active aging and will explore how technology will impact wellness environments, services, staff and customer expectations, engagement and outcomes.
“To have Christy Davis participating in the ICAA Forum this year is a great honor, and we are excited to have a seat at the table for a discussion that will shape the future of our industry,” said Al Eads, Executive Vice President.
