  • Great workshop!  HSCN always keeps us informed on new developments and programs (Ottawa, ON)
  • Very informative!  Great session!!(London, ON)
  • I wanted to follow up with you to let you know how incredibly valuable my team and I found the presentation.  We covered a lot of ground over our session but she kept our attention, answered all of our questions and educated us on vendor credentialing and  the BPS purchasing directives.  It was money well-spent and I'm glad we were able to make it happen!
