UMTRC Virtual Conference
It’s so hard to believe that summer is nearing the halfway point for many students who normally return to their classrooms in August. While some schools have released their social distancing plans, many others have not. It seems likely that face masks will be required in most public areas throughout the remainder of the year. As in-person events start opening up, we encourage you to come and see us for your free UMTRC facemask! Here’s a sneak peek:
With the UMTRC’s July 2020 conference, we had really hoped to see everyone in person, but too many of our partner organizations have travel bans in place through September or beyond. We hope that you and your families are staying healthy and encourage you to register for our virtual conference. You will soon see promotional information about the speakers and their breakout sessions. This year, speakers have been asked to provide information on a new COVID hobby, a new COVID recipe, and what they are binge watching on Netflix. During the conference, we will be encouraging attendees to participate by answering this same questions as well. So get ready to #newCOVIDhobby, #newCOVIDrecipe, #bingeCOVIDNetflix, and #tweetyourseat for #UMTRC2020!
We started with 400 scholarships for the conference – 100 for each of the states in our region. These scholarships are going fast, so be sure to register soon! The full agenda is posted on the UMTRC website and registration is still open!
If you are already registered for the event, THANK YOU! We invite you to visit the conference homepage here: https://eventmobi.com/umtrc2020/

Will COVID-19 Telehealth Policy Changes Become Permanent?
As the COVID-19 pandemic has dragged on over the last several weeks, the million-dollar question for many in the healthcare industry is: What will be the fate of the temporary telehealth expansions in Medicare after the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) ends? This was exactly the question that underlined the Senate Committee hearing last week titled, “Telehealth: Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.” Members of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee heard from four witnesses on the topic including:
