Featured speaker is Sonia Jackson Myles, author of The Sister Accord-51 Ways to Love Your Sister. Ms. Myles will focus on the caregiving experience.

AARP will provide CAREversation, an interactive experience to provide caregivers tips and tools to care for themselves and their loved ones.

There will also be an expert panel discussion on topics such as the Risks in African-Americans, Signs and Symptoms of Caregiver Stress, and Care in the Late Stages of Alzheimer's, and the Ohio Caregiving Act which provides support to Ohio's 1.4 million family caregivers. The Ohio Caregiving Act was enacted into law on March 20, 2017.
