Elevating the Global Dementia IQ with Ellen Belk, BC-DEd, CDP

A live & interactive discussion with Ellen Belk, BC-DEd, CDP, a respected trailblazer in the senior living and active aging sector for over two decades. A straight-talking thought leader who effectively advises executives to the frontlines of care.

Ellen Belk, BC-DEd, CDP 

From the sidelines to the frontlines. After ten successful years in Sports Broadcasting, Ellen transitioned into the Senior Living space. She traded in her courtside seats on press row in New York City to take an entry-level job at a nursing home in Wisconsin. Certainly a unique transition. Ellen brought a fresh set of eyes and a new perspective to an industry that doesn’t crave change. Early on, she stood out as a fearless advocate for both residents in her care and the staff she supervised. Once an industry outsider now a dynamic speaker, Dementia Expert and celebrated innovative thought leader in the aging space.
