Schedule

FAHQ Annual Conference
April 30 – May 2, 2018

April 30 – May 1, 2019 (Tuesday/Wednesday)
NAHQ CPHQ Review Course
This year we are co-hosting a course presented directly by NAHQ for those working toward obtaining their Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ) credential.

Registration and continental breakfast start both days at 7:00 AM, with the course starting promptly at 8:00 AM.  Lunch is provided and the course ends at 4:30 PM each day.

NAHQ has set pricing and the member discount applies only to NAHQ members. NAHQ is processing registrations at NAHQ Course Registration

May 2-3, 2019 (Thursday/Friday)
Annual Conference and Poster Session

Please register before April 25, 2019 to receive the best fees and to help us in planning space for our attendees.

With a full day on Thursday and half-day Friday, we are offering 12.5 continuing education credits, including the posters.  Our new venue better supports on-your-own social networking in the evening, with the conference networking event moved to a luncheon on Thursday, rather than a formal reception later. There will still be raffle and door prize opportunities, along with other Special Events.
