It is hard to believe that we are now in July.  With all of the fun July 4th festivities soon to be over we will be 1/3 of the way thru summer.  If you haven't planned that fun summer getaway now is the time to do it!  The kids will all be back in school before we know it.  


In June we had our first of two annual public policy committees.  Toby Pearson from Care Providers of MN was our speaker.  He gave us a wonderful overview of the results from the most recent legislative session and we had a great discussion about observation stays in the hospital.  That topic in particular was very interactive and educational.  A great many thanks to Toby for sharing his information with us and all of the membership who attended for the informative discussion!


Make sure to mark your calendar for the July Membership meeting.  It will be on July 23rd this month.  We look forward to seeing you there.
