WSHA Virtual Happy Hour: Medical Providers

June 30, 2020, 7:00-8:00 p.m. CST



Stay in your sweats, grab your favorite beverage, and connect with colleagues across Wisconsin during WSHA's Happy Hour Series.  Virtual networking is running from 6/16 through 8/25 and offers a meet-up for everybody.  Although sessions will be facilitated, these 1 hour gatherings offer an informal time for Q&A with colleagues, sharing resources, and connecting with others facing similar challenges and successes.

She also provides inpatient AAC consultation at the University of Wisconsin University Hospital (UWUH) and American Family Children’s Hospital (AFCH). Sarah currently serves as a member of Patient Provider Communication (PPC) Taskforce, which has developed a series of communication materials and trainings for healthcare workers to support communication for patients with COVID-19.
