THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING our 2019 Medicare Summit

We had our largest turnout ever for a STAHU conference and want to say, "Thank You" for the 100+ that attended our 2019 Medicare Summit.  


Also a MAJOR THANK YOU to all of our sponsors listed below.   Please take time to view some of images and take time to visit all of our sponsors who helped support our Conference.  


Without our sponsors your $65 CE credits / two meal / Boat Cruise would of cost so much more.  We can't do it without their support.  Now it's our turn to 

SUPPORT THOSE WHO SUPPORT OUR ASSOCIATION.  


The Island called and we answered.  See you at our Spring Education Day in 2020.
