Let Us Know that You are Interested - It's Simple
We are currently gathering a list of interested providers as we work behind the scenes to determine a membership fee that will cover the costs. Some state and federal grants may help fund this program. Submitting anonymous information about interested providers will help in the applications process. Also, the more we know about your practice, the better able we will be to develop support that is appropriate to your level of experience.
Our goal is to develop a cadre of serious providers. This program is about quality not quantity. Be assured, you will be in good company.
