UW-Eau Claire to Hold Third Annual
Health Care Administration Banquet 

MAILED: April 8, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire student chapter of the American College of Health Care Administrators is holding its third annual banquet at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at the Park Inn and Suites in Eau Claire.
         The event, for current students, alumni and health care providers, is designed to stimulate thinking about the future of the health care field.
         Charles Roadman II, M.D., is the scheduled keynote speaker for the event. The title of his speech is "Raising the Bar: Preparing Tomorrow's Leaders." Roadman is president and chief executive officer of the American Health Care Association, a federation of 50 affiliated associations representing about 12,000 non-profit and for-profit nursing facilities, subacute care centers and assisted living residences.
         This year is of special significance because it marks the beginning of the fundraising for the Center for Health and Aging Services Excellence, a new university and provider partnership serving Wisconsin and Minnesota.
         In addition, ACHCA members will honor the retirement of Gene Decker, coordinator of the health care administration program for the past 25 years.
         Sponsors of the event are Dove Healthcare, Heyde Companies, Wipfli Ullrich Bertelson LLP, Grace Foundation/American Lutheran Homes, Cornell Care Center/Oakwood Villa, The Clairemont, Lakeside Nursing and Rehabilitation, Pathways, Grandview Care Center and the Chair for Long-term Care and Aging at the University of Minnesota.
         The cost is $25 for students, $50 for advocates and $75 for patrons. Tickets can be purchased at the allied health department in Room 205 of the Human Sciences and Services building on Water Street.
         For more information, contact Jennifer Kane at (715) 855-2848 or kaneja@uwec.edu or Sandy Schulner at (715) 836-2628 or schulnss@uwec.edu.
