He will present “Access to Healthcare: The Role of Facilitated Virtual Care” for the Louisiana Association for Healthcare Quality’s Fall Conference being held at East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie, Louisiana on October 17, 2019.

On October 22, 2019, Dr. Mihale will address attendees of Louisiana Primary Care Association’s 36th Annual Conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Dr. Mihale’s presentation for this conference will be “Expanding Care Delivery: Addressing Social Determinants of Health.”

Participants at both conferences will walk away with working solutions they can implement in their own healthcare delivery systems, resulting in better patient outcomes and satisfaction.
