The NOSORH Annual Meeting was held in historic Boston, Massachusetts, on September 7-8. Attendees enjoyed an incredible agenda of speakers, breakout sessions and time to network with colleagues. As one attendee noted, “I learn a lot from my colleagues and the speakers. I find much of that learning takes place in the hallways, lunch and other breaks as I meet new people with new information that is important to our SORH.”
Participants indicated a 20% increase in content knowledge after attending and 90% of attendees reported that the breakout sessions were effective. “This meeting is so rich and full of content, sharing and expertise in a relaxed and open environment. It is always great to learn from national experts, hear from our SORH colleagues around the country and talk about the important issues facing the work we do every day. No man or woman is an Island in the work we do with this conference and NOSORH. Great job to all the staff as always,” said another participant.
