MANA ShineScholarships at #MANA15

MANA recognizes that attending the annual conference involves a commitment of time and resources. To help ease that burden on those for whom registration costs are a prohibitive financial hardship, MANA, with support from the Foundation from the Advancement of Midwifery (FAM), will again be offering registration scholarships to attend the conference.

The program and registration will be live shortly. In the meantime we are opening the scholarship application process to offer interested midwives or students the maximum amount of time to apply. Priority will be given to those who have not received a MANA scholarship in the past. If you intend to attend regardless of scholarship status, we recommend you register early bird to secure the lowest possible registration costs. If you are subsequently awarded a scholarship, you will receive a full refund. The deadline to apply is July 31.

Download the application here.

Update from the DOR

All Online, No Paper Forms

In case you worked with a practice contributing to MANA Stats in the past but are not now, you might not know that we no longer use the paper Client Consent Form -- it's all on-line now, so no need ever again for mailing envelopes, delays, lost and duplicate consent forms... So much easier (for us too!) If you have a dormant account, just contact us to reactivate it!
