Fellows would be available with any help we can provide. Use the tools that are
there to help. Please persevere. It is worth the "trip."

physicians. A strong communication base and joint efforts can only enhance the
services we provide our patients/families in this every changing environment.
- Remember to assist
a co-worker to become a better team player, as the brief list of strategies
remember that we have another education program scheduled for September 6, 2017
in Wichita. The topics will be announced shortly. Face to face credits will be
identified in the announcements.
