Healthcare Quality Association Webinar Partnerships! 

AzAHQ is proud to share our webinar partnership is growing! Beginning in Q4, 2020, the Michigan Association for Healthcare Quality and the  North Carolina Association for Healthcare Quality have joined Arizona and Oregon in offering webinars free to active members of any participating association. This means that AzAHQ members will have the opportunity to attend at least 4 webinars per quarter (one hosted by each participating association) at no additional cost. 


We are excited to continue our efforts to share knowledge across the continuum of care throughout Arizona and we're thrilled to have partners who share a passion for such mission-driven work! Check back soon for announcements on future partnership webinar dates.
