It’s been a busy 2019 for our Specialty Health team! Christy Vago, Julie Bobak and team traveled around the country attending industry conferences, conventions and participated in speaking engagements. They collaborated these efforts with key business partners and industry professionals, such as Health Rosetta, to participate in discussions around healthcare trends. The team also got together with one another regularly throughout the year to reflect on their accomplishments thus far. As we close the door on 2019, the team is looking forward to a successful 2020. Follow us on LinkedIn to keep up with the Specialty Health team’s efforts and events.
