Monday, March 26 | 4:00–5:30 PM

The digital age is here and now, and reluctance to join the technology era is becoming a hindrance to a rapidly changing landscape. Leaders from technology are creating a new tech-enabled paradigm for aging. From Samsung, IBM and Great Call to internet providers, CDW hosts a panel on the 21st-century digital aging experience. In a world where the aging adult is outpacing the number of caregivers, learn how technology is filling the gap in caregiving, healthcare and social support services. Kate Lorig will illuminate the discussion by bringing the voice of the older adult to the conversation.
 
Presenters: Ginna Baik, Senior Care Business Strategist & Development, CDW Healthcare; Daniel Herscovici, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Xfinity Home; David Inns, CEO, Great Call; Kate Lorig, RN, DrPH, Partner, Self-Management Resource Center; Lilian Meyers, Global Leader, Aging and Longevity Economy, IBM Watson; Dr. David Rhew, Chief Medical Officer of Samsung Electronics America.
