COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the recent Covid-19 situation and ongoing safety concerns for all involved, the UHMS Gulf Coast Chapter leadership has decided to cancel the in-person 2020 Gulf Coast Chapter meeting. In lieu of the live meeting, we are currently planning a combined virtual chapter meeting to include three (3) of the top lectures from each one of our regional chapters. The virtual chapter meeting is expected to be available at the UHMS Online CME Portal later this year at www.courses-uhms.org (tentatively October 2020). We are looking forward to providing our Members and community with this and other various educational programs to stay up to date in the industry as well as maintain continuing education requirements with top-notch programming.
