FAHQ Annual Conference
April 30 – May 1, 2019

FAHQ is excited to introduce you to our new approach to the annual conference.  As noted in the logo above, we are striving to move FAHQ forward in advancing healthcare quality in Florida by providing education to support those working in the field.  The conference is FAHQ’s premier education event each year.

The week’s programs will include the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ) Review Course on Tuesday/ Wednesday (April 30-May 1), Pre-Conference session on Wednesday (May 1), and the Annual Conference on Thursday and Friday (May 2-3).

NOTE: Those registered for the CPHQ Course will not be able to register for the Pre-Conference session.
