VOYCE will provide scholarships to attend our Long-Term Care Conference on Thursday, June 15, 2023, at St. Louis University’s Margaret McCormick Doisy Learning Resource Center, focusing on Residents First. This resource assistance will allow organizations to send a representative to participate in the event who might not attend due to financial constraints.

The conference will provide a day of education, networking, and collaborative engagement, providing attendees with important information, support, and inspiration in their journey as long-term care professionals. The scholarship will provide registration for the event and CEU accreditation for the event program and speakers.

Topics and themes of the conference program include residents’ rights, interventions to address loneliness in residents, the future of long-term care and staffing, and ways to improve resident quality of life and health.

Scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to meet and engage with over 150 fellow long-term care professionals, event sponsors, and vendors.
