Regional conference's offer one of the most effective ways to stay up-to-date
with the latest approaches to medical fitness operations and programming.
They allow everyone to learn from each other while networking with
like-minded people and organizations dedicated to the medical fitness industry.
No matter what region you are in, we invite you to participate
in any of the other regions around the country.

"Just two days of your time will equip you with an
abundance of ideas to implement in your facility."
