News from Massachusetts Extension
I had the opportunity to attend the CMSA Annual Conference in Chicago a few weeks ago, it was my first CMSA Annual and the experience was incredible. Not only did I participate in several main and breakout sessions but I had networking opportunities too numerous to count. I was able to learn about programs and ideas from colleagues from across the country, and the world, as countries such as South Africa, the UK and Brazil were represented among others. The CMSA Case Manager of the Year, Carol Garner, was from South Africa and her story of developing the first Case Management program in her country was inspiring. I would recommend to anyone that they should attend at least one of these conferences for the experience and education, they are informative, fun and I will admit exhausting with full scheduled each day but worth every minute.
Our Massachusetts Extension is on the summer hiatus after a successful spring season of programs in various parts of the state. Our fall schedule is shaping up with some events confirmed including;
