A Conference Celebrating a Decade of Progress

At the only statewide PACE conference in the nation, 250+ attendees celebrated the fundamental impact PACE has made on lives across North Carolina over the past decade. Those at the conference got advice from experts, networked with peers, and left feeling inspired, energized and primed to serve their communities.

No matter what your role is in PACE; in a PACE program, in the community or at your loved one’s side; the core of PACE remains the same – to transform healthcare in North Carolina. Here’s what you missed at this year’s conference.

Authentic Connections with People

What takes a conference from great to can’t-wait-to-go-back is the connections people made and how they had fun while doing it. With 250+ attendees, the NC PACE Association's Fifth Annual Conference was unique in its intimate size and larger-than-life energy. PACE staff members met and chatted with fellow colleagues, potential vendors and renowned speakers in a friendly atmosphere at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham, NC.
