Professional Development

KYACHW members, the Professional Development Committee is once again asking for your input on upcoming training topics. Please take a couple of minutes to complete the survey at the link below (it is only two questions). We value your input and want to ensure we are bringing you relevant topics for your professional development needs. The survey will remain open until 04/23/24 when the Professional Development team meets again to determine our topic for our Q2 meeting in June. If you have any questions or additional comments, please reach out. Thank you for all the work you do for your clients, patients and communities, and for being a part of the KYACHW!
