Salem Hospital Resource Fair

Save the Date: February 24th

The Annual Resource Fair for the Case Management Department will be held in February. Sponsors should start selecting their education topics, as we strongly encourage all sponsors to present an 5-10 minute education (non promotional) topic at the event. There will be VERY limited space for non-sponsors/marketing only tables this year. All sponsors will be sent a link to register next month.
View the Education page of our website for additional inspiration for your poster content and to reserve your marketing space.

Salem Hospital plans to reach out to Santiam and Silverton hospital staff as well.
Nugget of Knowledge

"The best way to be missed when your gone is to stand for something when you're here."
- Seth Godin

The past year I have lost several friends and I miss them and their insight. But- I am often surprised at how everyone appears to move on. I often wander if I will make a big enough difference and will I be missed for more than a brief fleeting moment. My grandfather passed away more than 20 years ago and I still reference him and look to our time together for advice. He made a difference. What will you be remembered for?  - Amy
