The inaugural Advance Care Alliance Symposium was held on November 10, 2015 in downtown Manhattan at the offices of EmblemHealth. Nearly 200 members, representing more than 100 ACA agencies, joined us to review the status of the OPWDD Transformation Agenda, take a moment to reflect on our progress so far, and obtain updates about the launch of Managed Care for people with I/DD living in New York State. Our guest speakers included:
