“As a brand new administrator this has been very informative. The most useful portions have been what to notice on patient files and the quality of reporting—all these things I’ve heard about but have yet applied."
Jessica Robidoux
"I loved it. The best part is that the course is kept small so we can ask questions and network without feeling intimidated. Also, the toolkits we get to take home are very helpful."
