2017 council Meeting re-cap


Our 2017 meeting was held on October 10, 2017, at the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center, and was primarily about refocusing the lens with respect to patient engagement, our daily practices, and quality improvement.  Participants had the opportunity to earn up to 6.25 continuing education (CE) credits and to win prizes via multiple drawings throughout the day.
