The National Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Virtual Conference trains and educates healthcare professionals across Advocate Aurora Health, as well as multiple other health systems across the country and beyond. We will continue to seize the opportunity to use technology and reach more healthcare workers than ever before by offering this conference virtually.
