On Wednesday, March 25th EmblemHealth’s NYCP4FCC came together for a very productive event at TIME, Inc. “Care For the Caregiver – Real Solutions for Tough Situations”
The large conference room was packed with over 50 working caregivers who joined us to learn about what the Corps had to offer. Instead of just having everyone just talk to Corps members one-on-one at their respective tables, Greg Johnson thought it would be much more productive to try a different format. As always, he graciously introduced the Corps panel members and gave us time to talk about our work and what we had to offer in the way of help. Then the room was opened up for Q & A.
Working this way allowed for each question to answered by panel members with different points of view (which provided more options) and also allowed everyone present to have an opportunity to hear and learn something of great value that also concerned them.
Afterwards, many caregivers told us how glad they were to have taken their lunch time to attend. They realized that they shared many concerns with others in their workplace and the discussions made them feel that they were “not so alone” in their struggles.
