Don’t Miss the MassPACE 1st Annual Conference – September 18, 2019

Join us for a networking and learning experience as we celebrate the unique aspect of integrated care demonstrated by the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). There are eight PACE plan providers across Massachusetts serving 5,000 consumers in the community. The MassPACE Association was formed in 2017 for the purposes of providing leadership and support for growth, access, quality, and success of PACE in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Come hear about innovations, best practices, and caring for yourself and others in this hands-on interactive conference. Registration includes, lunch, raffles, workshops, and the networking wine and cheese reception following the workshops.
