This week, the MEG Business marketing and sales team is excited to head to Grapevine, Texas for the APTA 2021 PPS Annual Conference and Exhibition, the premier event designed for Physical Therapy Business Management.
As leaders in solutions for PT practice management, this is certainly one of the highlights of our year. Last month, we outlined “Where to Find MEG at 2021 PPS” and now we want to highlight the agenda and sessions that help you make the most of this exciting event.
