VGM releases Heartland Conference Education Schedule
The event, running Sept. 13-15, will feature both in-person presentations and a virtual component so that registrants can earn contact hours, as well as network with and learn from peers.
VGM has announced the schedule for its 20th annual Heartland Conference, which runs Sept. 13-15 in Waterloo, Iowa.
Along with traditional in-person presentations, the two-day conference and networking event will also feature a virtual component. The conference will cover areas such as respiratory, accessibility, rehab, leadership, operations, sales and marketing, billing and reimbursement.
“The Heartland Conference will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and we have scheduled some great new additions to make it one to remember,” said Kayla Mahler, brand manager at VGM & Associates, who oversees Heartland’s educational offerings as Heartland education chair. “We want this milestone to be a valuable experience for each attendee — from the educational sessions to the social and networking events.”
Together, the in-person and virtual sessions will offer nearly 70 options for registrants to earn contact hours. In-person attendees alone can earn an estimated 15 contact hours/CEUs and can also attend panel discussions, register for home modification installer training and wheelchair repair tech training sessions, engage with vendors, and attend community dinners and other networking events.
To further expand the peer-to-peer learning opportunities, Heartland will again feature a number of social events, including community dinners.
“Heartland attendees are extremely engaged in their industries, and they’re looking for a back-and-forth dialog that discusses various perspectives,” Mahler. “With our lineup of engaging sessions, 2021 is sure to exceed expectations.”
