Join us as we build on material from last year’s “An Introduction to Quality Veteran Programs for Hospice Providers” . This presentation will take a more in-depth look at the We Honor Veterans Program by focusing on level 3 and 4 while also touching on recruit, level 1 and 2. Our goal is to educate and excite while also hearing success stories from our audience.
