Editor’s Note: Last week, several of Creating Results’ leaders went to Hershey, PA, for the annual LeadingAge Pennsylvania conference. In addition to sharing our own insights with attendees, team members had the privilege of learning from other presenters.
Over the next few posts, we’ll share some OUTtakes and INsights for marketing to seniors and Baby Boomers.

SPEAKERS: Niamh Fabiszewski, Director of Application Services; Jeremy Neely, VP Northeast Region
