It’s Pennsylvania’s biggest & best elder law conference
In Washington a new administration and Republican controlled Congress are making changes in health care and proposing deep cuts to Medicaid and other benefits for seniors. At the state and local levels, budgets are strained and many essential services for the elderly and disabled are being eliminated. With America’s 65-and-over population projected to nearly double over the next three decades, elder law professionals need to be prepared to offer advice and planning options to seniors. Our Elder Law Institute is the place to find fresh ideas and new ways to advocate for your elderly clients and their families.
