Nugget of Knowledge

"If you're interested, you'll do what's convenient; If you're committed, you'll do whatever it takes."
- John Assaraf
Are you doing what's convenient, or whatever it takes? A person with a strong will is someone who can dig deep down and do whatever it takes to get things into motion. In order to grow and expand you must always step out of your comfort zone and into uncertainty. Take action and be committed in all you do.
- Meghan   
Next Hospital Resource Fair

Rogue Regional Medical Center

September 16th, 2015 (event time 11:30-1:30pm)

Hospital Resource Fair and CEU Event
A win-win-win event...
  1. Providers have the opportunity to network with Hospital Case Managers, Discharge Planning support staff.
  2. Hospital staff are able to gather resource information from several vendors at one location, while obtaining Continuing Education Credits.
  3. All registration fees are used to support the Low Income Patients Discharge Fund. (Last year we coordinated the fundraising of more than $15,000 for local hospitals and their patients).
CEU's: 1 CEU credits have been approved by CCMC for Case Managers and this is an approved body for Oregon Social Workers
