WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 23, 2020)—On December 1 and December 2, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and the Home Care and Hospice Financial Managers Association (HHFMA) will present two new webinars that are must-attend for all financial managers in the industry.

The Home Health Boot Camp and Hospice Boot Camp are some of the most popular educational sessions every year at the Financial Management Conference (FMC). However, due to Covid concerns this year, the FMC became a virtual event and the boot camps were moved from July to December. Otherwise, however, the content is unchanged; it’s the same timely and critical information taught by the most trusted experts in home health and hospice.

You can register for each boot camp separately or buy them both and save! The link to buy both is at the bottom of this page.
