My presentation today at the National Association of Occupational Health Professionals (NAOHP) Annual Conference is special for a couple of reasons. First, it is the organization’s 30th anniversary. Their first conference was held 30 years ago at Boston’s Westin Copley Place Hotel. Fittingly, this year’s conference has returned to Boston. The second reason this speaking engagement will be special is that I have the honor of presenting with the organization’s founder, Frank Leone. Together, we will lead a sales and marketing workshop for NAOHP’s membership. Frank is an icon in the field of Occupational Health. To share the stage with him is a dream come true. I fully expect to do a lot of learning during our workshop! This will be Frank’s moment and I’ll be his sidekick, happily.
If you aren’t familiar with the NAOHP conference, it is an amazing professional development opportunity intended for program directors and clinic managers, medical directors, staff physicians, nurses and other clinicians; senior health system executives, sales and marketing professionals; and support staff. Hospital-affiliated occupational health programs, freestanding clinics and multi-specialty practices are always represented – as are consultants, employers, insurers, and third party administrators. I had the honor of presenting at their 2015 conference in Chicago. It was a great experience.
Here’s the abstract for our presentation. Look for my Tweets while Frank shares his wisdom!
