Massachusetts Events

News from Massachusetts Extension


We’ve all welcomed in the dog days of summer, avoided the sharks on the Cape and surviving the staffing nightmares fueled by summer vacations; and the Massachusetts Extension continues to be hard at work!

We had the opportunity to hold a presentation at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington on Domestic and Sexual Abuse: What Healthcare Providers Need to Know, A DPH-Approved Ch260 Compliance Training for MA Healthcare license renewal on July 25th. This turned out to be a big success with 200 attendees, one of our largest single day events of the year. This followed a program we had with Tufts Health that also had about 200 attending. Events like these gives us great opportunity to reach many professionals who may consider membership to CMSNE.

We take a brief break then offer these scheduled events starting in September;

Remember that CMSNE is celebrating our 30th Anniversary, next year CMSA will be celebrating their 30th and the CMSA Annual Conference is coming to Boston next June; this will cap off a yearlong celebration of our organizations. If you have not had opportunity to attend the national conference this will be year to do it.
