We had hoped to see each of you in person at our 2021 Summit, however, in light of the continuing risk to transmitting COVID to the individuals you serve, as well as the governor’s continued order of no mass gatherings, we are excited to present this year’s event Live Online. In addition to the great schedule of live presentations on January 20, OHCA members will receive complimentary access to a host of on-demand educational programs.
