    Learning Labs: Maximum of four presenters. These presentations are reserved for individuals working in the field of Patient Access and will account for the majority of the educational content to be offered at the conference. Each concurrent workshop session will be 1.25 hours. Presentation material should be planned for approximately 60 minutes to allow some time for discussion and questions. All workshops MUST be free of any commercial bias and will be monitored for compliance. Note: In the event that there are several concurrent workshops papers submitted on the same topic, NAHAM may elect to create a session panel with equally timed presentations during one concurrent workshop session.


    NEW in 2019 - Lightning Learning: These session blocks were developed to provide quick, interactive learning opportunities for our attendees. We encourage presentations of all types, especially those that are more hands-on in nature.
