SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Elizabeth Edwards, children's advocate and wife of presidential candidate Senator John Edwards, will deliver the keynote address at the 2007 SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West Leadership Conference this weekend.

Mrs. Edwards will speak to the more than 2,000 hospital, nursing home, and homecare workers present on Saturday, the second day of the annual event.

"We're honored that Elizabeth Edwards will be joining our union leaders this weekend," said Sal Rosselli, president of UHW. "She and her husband are leaders in the effort to reform our nation's healthcare system and to help working people achieve the ability to improve their own lives."

At the Leadership Conference, workers will build on the successes of the union's bargaining convention held last month, in which activists representing 150,000 union members across six states laid the groundwork for collaboration in their upcoming contract negotiations next year. Senator John Edwards was the keynote speaker at the 2006 conference.

The conference begins at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, and concludes at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29. It will take place at the San Jose Convention Center, located at 408 Almaden Blvd. in San Jose. Mrs. Edwards is scheduled to speak at 12 noon on Saturday.
