Welcome Message from Organizing Committee Member    


Dr. Kristopher Brickman

On behalf of the University of Toledo Medical Center, it is truly my honor to participate in this conference. I am looking forward to discussing innovative opportunities in providing skilled nursing care and overall medical care management to patients in skilled nursing facilities. We are confident our unique multidisciplinary approach to delivering care within the facilities is quite superior to current used concepts throughout the world of simply sending these patients to emergency departments.

I look forward to the opportunity to explore opportunities to expand and collaborate on these educational endeavors and to look for new opportunities to provide innovative solutions in healthcare.
