Additional information

"NRAA has proven time and again how valuable they are to my ability to manage first as a director of a multidisciplinary hospital dialysis service and now as COO of a small for-profit dialysis company. Not only do they keep me informed of what is happening in the greater dialysis world but also have supplied me with tools to use in running my company especially relating to CMS regulations and bundling. NRAA has saved me both time and money."
