27th Annual Convention

"Pave the Way to a Better Future"

March 20 - 22, 2016

Hilton Columbus/Polaris, Columbus, OH


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


Plans for our 2016 ODONA/LTC Convention – “Paving the Way to a Better Future” – are underway and I think you will like what you see!  We’ve made a couple of BIG changes!

The first big change is the location.  This year’s convention will be held at the Hilton-Polaris, 8700 Lyra Drive, Columbus, OH  43240.  The facility is great; the location is convenient – right off I-71 at Polaris Parkway; room rates are slightly less expensive than last year’s and it is very close to great shopping at the Polaris Fashion Place.  The Embassy Suites has served us well in the past, but this year’s timing just didn’t work with them.

The other big change is that, based on your feedback at last year’s convention, the 2016 convention will not officially start until Monday morning, March 21, 2016.  We will offer a certification course on Diabetes on Sunday (March 20) afternoon at no additional charge, but registration for that course is separate and not an “official” part of the convention. If you want to come in on Sunday to attend this course, you are welcome and encouraged to do so.  If you prefer to attend only the official Convention, you need not be in Columbus until Monday morning.  Totally your choice.

We are in the process of putting the finishing touches on our schedule.  A complete schedule should be coming soon.  For now, we have confirmed these speakers:

Janet Feldkamp, RN, BSN, LNHA, CHC, JD
Jane Belt, MS, RN, RAC-MT
Dustin Ellinger, BSN, MHA, RN
Kelli Marsh, RHIA, RAC-CT

We will also have two certification courses – Diabetes (Sunday afternoon) and Infection Control (Tuesday morning) – available for attendees.

Like last year, if you want to save a little money, register for the convention before January 15th and you will save $50.00 per attendee.  Registration forms are located under the “Convention” tab on our website –

We look forward to seeing you in March!
