In her first year attending the conference, Cecilia said, "I honestly have to say this was one of the best 2 day conferences I've attended.

Cecilia joined Christel Chuderewicz, RHIT/CCS, Director of Clinical Applications at Butler Memorial Hospital and Kathy Westhafer, RHIA, CHPS, Program Manager, Clinical Info Access at Christiana Care Health System on a CAC panel led by facilitator Marilyn Marchant, Product Management Consultant at Alpha Systems.
