In this episode, we speak with leaders in healthcare at the 2017 Wisconsin Healthcare Public Relations & Marketing Society Conference (WHPRMS) in Sheboygan, Wis. about why they attend WHPRMS, what they’ve learned at the event and what they plan on incorporating into their marketing efforts in 2018. 

While each attendee has their own, individual takeaways from the conference, there were some collective thoughts from each healthcare professional we spoke with. All of the conference reviews were extremely positive. The attendees raved about this year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Jerry Teplitz, and value the networking opportunities and educational breakout sessions.
