Connect With Practice Management at the 2016 NACHC CHI in Chicago
On August 28–30, Practice Management exhibited at the 2016 Community Health Institute & Expo as part of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). Held at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, IL, the 3-day event is one the largest and most significant annual events that brings together over 2,000 community health center managers, clinicians, board members and leaders.
