How to Exhibit at a Virtual Event

The platform THCA has selected is very user friendly and intuitive.  Exhibiting companies will have their own landing page within the "virtual exhibit hall" with a number of customizable areas.  Once you register as an exhibitor you will receive login and access to the virtual platform (approximately one month prior to Convention) where you can edit your page.  You may add videos, images, contact information, company description, documents and company representative information.  Register before September 1 so you have time to update your virtual booth!

Opening Keynote Speaker

Stephanie Decker

"Courage in the Storm"

In March of 2012, a tornado ripped through the town of Henryville, Indiana. Stephanie Decker, a 37-year-old mother of three, found herself in a life-altering moment. As her house began to disintegrate around her, she shielded her two young children with her body. Her dream home fell in, crushing her legs, but because of her heroic actions, Stephanie's children were amazingly unscathed. It was a miracle that she even survived and made it to the hospital. At that point, doctors determined that parts of both legs would need to be amputated.

Since the tornado that took both of her legs, Stephanie Decker had to rethink and rebuild her life as she knew it. Using her own story, Stephanie helps an audience find their inner hero as well as recognize the everyday heroes all around us. She provides the inspirational message to help attendees develop a “can do” attitude to face their own challenges.

Closing Keynote Speaker

Jerald Cosey

"The Companionship Culture:  Resident/Caregiver Engagement Through Life Stories"

Today’s operational and clinical leaders navigate “white flag” moments daily. Responsibilities include quality outcomes, operational excellence, and staff development within a highly regulated industry, which may influence burnout as a healthcare professional. Isolation within the elder community is rising and with detrimental consequences. This trend is a reality for many residing within a healthcare community and frequently starts with physical separation before admission.

The worldwide CORONA pandemic has compounded realities for the senior healthcare community. An epidemic that has scrutinized yet galvanized the industry and required professional and personal sacrifice.
This motivational message designed to recognize and honor healthcare professionals for their contribution during this worldwide pandemic. Moreover, it influences a cultural movement to reduce isolation to improve person-centered care.
