13th Annual
NYSUT PROFESSIONAL ISSUES FORUM ON HEALTH CARE
Desmond Hotel, Albany, New York
April 18, 2015


Dear NYSUT Health Care Professional,

On behalf of the NYSUT officers, I invite you to attend NYSUT's Professional Issues Forum on Health Care at the Desmond Hotel, Albany, NY on April 18, 2015.

The NYSUT Health Care Professionals Council is an advocacy group for more than 15,000 workers in the health care field who are members of bargaining units throughout the state. The Professional Issues Forum on Health Care is a major event sponsored by the council and provides an opportunity to strengthen your professional skills, enhance your practice and network with other health care professionals who perform similar work.

This conference is designed for nurses, psychologists, school counselors and guidance counselors, clinical instructors, pharmacists and therapists who work in public and private sector schools, hospitals, universities, visiting nurse associations and residential and day treatment facilities. We encourage local presidents to support member participation in this important conference.

By attending this conference you will:

  • Gain the knowledge you need by attending workshops focused on strategies you can immediately implement and share with your colleagues.
    This year's conference has been expanded to include 18 workshops.
  • Earn up to 4.5 nursing contact hours. NYSUT has submitted the content of this year's conference to AFT Healthcare for contact hour credit. AFT Healthcare is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
  • Reconnect with friends and colleagues; make valuable new contacts at the professional networking groups.
  • Learn about the resources and services available to NYSUT health care professionals.

Advance your practice and get involved in your union! Additional information on the conference is below. Please join us and register today!

Paul Pecorale
NYSUT Vice President
