Indiana PHCC "Un"Convention

According to the Indiana PHCC, "the Executive leadership of IN PHCC has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person state convention at French Lick in September.  The risks to attendees and the uncertainty of the environment at that time made it the right thing to do.  Our alternative plan is to utilize the professional speakers we had engaged for the event and will put on a series of once a month webinars beginning in August."  Sessions are free, registration is required.  Contact Brenda Dant to register, 317-575-9292 or brenda@iaphcc.com.
