Joint Task Force Conference 6/6/2017

I am looking forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming Conference! We are very excited about this year's program, but know our professionals are always looking for opportunities for ethics credits.  To help, I found this online resource with pre-approved online ethics courses for as little as $8.00. See you at the Conference!

Medical Breakthroughs in Treatment and Technology have allowed more options to medical patients and options for our clients than ever before.  What are the benefits and drawbacks of parties employing the latest in treatment practices?  What are the challenges?  How do we improve the way we educate ourselves, the injured workers, employers, and adjusters? What about controversial treatments such as medical marijuana, opioids, and botox?  Employer, industry standards, client, and individual proclivities may impact our ability to focus on the Injured Worker and ensure they are returned to functional, working life.  Are we keeping up? How can we learn from each other? Other industries?  What makes sense?  We hope you will help answer some of these questions and more. PARKING LOTS G & H (Lot F - overflow).

We Provide College Scholarships to the Children of Maryland's Seriously Injured Workers

It is the families and the children who are many times forgotten when these losses occur. Kids’ Chance of Maryland, Inc. provides an opportunity for these children to pursue their education, reach their goals, and fulfill their dreams for the future.
