CAH DON/QIC Regional Meetings

The MT Flex Grant hits the road every October to meet with Directors of Nursing and Quality Coordinators in each MHA Region.   Regional meetings are designed so CAH staff can travel to and from in one day.  Please let Jennifer Wagner know if you are interested in hosting for your region in October 2019!
