UPDATE –> As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve and place great demand on healthcare organizations, we have postponed this event to focus resources on the immediate needs of our policyholders who continue to serve their communities. We do not have a date for rescheduling at this time, but we will revisit the event and provide updates when it becomes appropriate to do so.

Registration is now open for “Managing Your Social Media Presence,” a complimentary webinar hosted by MLMIC and HANYS.
