Welcome to the 2nd #Impact80 Virtual Summit

Why Impact80 Summit?

By 2030, the over-65 population will nearly triple, dramatically impacting the health care system in the United States and globally. Now, more than ever, family caregivers represent critical members of the healthcare & long term care team.

By definition, a caregiver is an unpaid family member, friend, or neighbor who provides care to an individual who has an acute or chronic condition and needs assistance at home with managing a variety of tasks and complex care.

According to the AARP & National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC), about 62.1 million family caregivers in the United States provided care to an adult with limitations in daily activities at any given point in time. The monetary value of their unpaid contributions was about more than $450 billion.

An aging population means a growing number of people with chronic conditions to manage and lack of support and resource is often the reality for them. With Impact80 Virtual Summit, be prepared to connect with other caregivers and national + international experts. Learn to be empowered. Learn to become an engaged health advocate & an equipped caregiver for you, yourself and your families.
