December 17

18th Annual Point-of-Care Coordinators Forum and CPOCT Division Business Meeting & Awards Recognition
8:30am-11:00am Central US time

The virtual 18th Annual POCC Forum will address existing barriers to healthcare access – highlighted by the ongoing pandemic – which prevent many people from receiving care. Speakers, Allison Chambliss, PhD, Brett Feldman, MSPAS, PA-C, Morgan Hutchinson, MD, and JoAnn Crain, MS, will discuss how POCT is ideally suited to address some of these issues and the challenges of implementation outside a hospital setting. Prior to the Forum program, the CPOCT Division chair will present a brief business program and 2020 CPOCT Division award winners will be recognized for their achievements.
