    On November 20, 2002, from 7:00 to 9:00PM Eastern, National Family
    Caregivers Association (NFCA) and WHYY will partner together to host a town
    hall meeting on the costs of family caregiving - to families, businesses and
    the community. Moderated by WHYY's Tracey Matisak, Creating Community
    Solutions to the Costs of Caregiving, is one in a series of town hall
    meetings presented across the country by NFCA. WHYY will serve as NFCA's
    media partner for all of the town hall meetings, providing live webcasts at
    The town hall meeting will provide an opportunity for family caregivers,
    recipients and others whose professional roles put them in daily contact
    with family caregivers to share concerns and explore solutions regarding the
    costs of caregiving with a panel comprised of policy makers and leaders in
    position to create change in the lives of caregiving families.

    Please join us - and spread the word to people you think would be
    interested. Family caregivers and their loved ones are encouraged to
