Dear Sisters and Brother Morris:

It is with great pleasure that I provide you with links to the "Conversations on Caregiving" videos that so many of you participated in at the Salamander Resort & Spa in September. What a wonderful exchange of information, personal stories and advice we had! With these videos, we have an opportunity to provide information and resources to African-American families well beyond those that attended the "Because We Care™" forums. This is largely due to your time, enthusiasm and input and that of the representatives some of you sent in your stead.

As many of you are aware, November is National Family Caregivers Month. The "Conversations on Caregiving" are available on The Black Women's Agenda website (www.bwa-inc.org) and possibly as a link on the AARP site. BWA is also delighted to make the videos available to you, our National Collaborating Organizations, to post on your organizations' website. Directions for downloading the videos can be found below as well as the links to each conversation. I suggest posting the discussion on "The Health Impact of Caregiving" first as it includes an introduction to the "Conversations."
