Our Regional Conferences are proving to be very successful. It seems that each event we hold teaches us more about the successes that are realized in pursuit of safe patient handling practices and the need for information and practical education that remains. We also have learned that the regional conferences are appreciated for their easy access and valuable contacts that can be made in addition to the fine quality of the presentations. And, for the same reasons, the exhibitors are happy to attend these events as well – making it a win-win situation for everyone.
