THT works year-round to provide education for trustees so that you are up to speed on the most current healthcare governance information. Webinars are a tool for educating trustees without travel or multiple registration fees. With a speaker phone and internet connection, you can educate your entire board over lunch! These events will be recorded, but to take advantage of the discussion, join us live.
