Marketing and Social Media Training Workshops

We invite you to join us for our annual Rural Health Care Marketing Conference. We have experienced presenters deliver insights on market research, engaging employees in social media, starting out with video, content marketing (blogging, digital media, video), trends in social media and a few features on new health care initiatives taking place in Kansas. 

The best thing about this conference is that it is developed for anyone who manages marketing for a rural or urban underserved health care organization that many times have little to no staff, minimal budgets and few resources. We bring in presenters who share strategies to help boost an organization's marketing efforts. The attendees also enjoy networking with each other by sharing their experiences and by asking for suggestions to help with their challenges.
