2022 Annual Conference

Recognizing the burden that Hurricane Ian has placed on both individuals and healthcare entities across our state, FAHQ is cancelling the upcoming conference scheduled for October 21, 2022 in Tampa.  The association is exploring options to present in 2023.  The conference registrar will contact all who paid for the conference regarding refund or application of fee to next year’s conference.
