In this economic downturn, all are affected. Additionally, rising fuel prices have many faced with the dilemma of where best to spend their $4--on a gallon of gas, or a gallon of milk?

Many question arise from these uncertain times, and some help may come in the form of AIHce 2008's Opening General Session keynote, titled "The Future of Work" and scheduled for 8 to 9:30 a.m. on Monday, June 2.
