Conference Agenda

NERUCA strives for regional access to legislative and payer advocacy, along with world class educational opportunities. Urgent care trends and issues continue to be raised at the state and regional levels and the need for urgent care centers to have a partner organization supporting and representing their interests is more important than ever.

NERUCA is proud to bring national urgent care expertise back to the northeast as we get “Back to the Basics.” This one and a half day meeting will provide exceptional urgent care learning and networking opportunities in a convenient location.
