ASHA Health Care Connect 2019

Learn new ways to juggle the evolving health care environment and your patients' complex medical issues—and earn continuing education credit—at Health Care Connect. Here, you'll get the tools to help you demonstrate measurable outcomes and navigate emerging regulations. 

Best-in-class presenters offer practical tools, research findings, and case scenarios to help you meet clinical challenges. Share your clinical and management challenges, and reinvigorate your practice with knowledge you acquire with a community of like-minded SLPs.

Plus, Health Care Connect is co-located with Private Practice Connect and Schools Connect, so you can build your customized learning experience. Feel free to cross over and attend sessions from the other conferences that pique your interest.
