Many of our members are in attendance for the same Healthcare Congresses throughout the year. Although it is a busy time for everyone, it is always nice to take a break, grab a drink, and catch up with our HCEA friends. At HCEA Meet-Ups, members and other industry professionals can network, learn from each other and give potential new members an opportunity to get a taste of what HCEA has to offer.

No RSVP is required for HCEA Meet-Ups. Just lookout for details on the next big Healthcare Congress and show up to the location. See below for our upcoming Meet-Ups with final details coming soon:
