27th Annual Convention

"Pave the Way to a Better Future"

March 20 - 23, 2016

Hilton Columbus/Polaris, Columbus, OH


Letter from the President Peggy Kish RN,
Clinical Services Director for Zandex Health Care

The results are in and, once again, our Annual Conference was a resounding success!  We had over 100 DONs in attendance – one of the largest groups we have had.  Our days were packed full with speakers covering a wide range of topics - stress reduction. MDS, quality care, behavioral clients, and much more. 

We also held our annual meeting at the Conference.   During the meeting, we discussed the length of the conference and decided that we should shorten it just a bit and begin future conferences on Monday morning rather than Sunday afternoon.   We will give the shortened conference a try in 2016.  Our 2016 Conference will be held March 21 and 22 at the Embassy Suites in Dublin, Ohio.  Topics for the conference will be based on your input.  Please send your suggestions to
