Delegation to Cuba

On December 14, 2012, Ellen Makofsky and Judy Raskin returned from a fascinating trip as members of a delegation to Cuba on behalf of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc. to analyze the long term care system in that country. We met with Cuban officials and attorneys regarding how Cuba delivers and finances services to its elderly and disabled population. Particularly interesting was the cultural perspective and how that affects the way care is provided. We will be writing about our trip and what we learned in the near future.
