When it comes to running a business like Brookdale, it pays to be “in the know” about the national economic environment! While at the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC) Fall Conference, Brookdale CEO Cindy Baier had a great opportunity to connect with Dr. Janet Yellen, Former Chair of the Federal Reserve.
As one of the world’s leading experts on the global economy, Dr. Yellen discussed with Ms. Baier how macroeconomic trends might impact seniors housing, skilled nursing and healthcare. They talked about interest policy and its impact on seniors housing and care, as well as upcoming healthcare trends.
Dr. Yellen, who was Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from 2014 until 2018, engaged in a moderated discussion during the opening general session. Ms. Baier is on the NIC Board of Directors and its Fall Conference Planning Committee.
