Thank You for Attending AHSR!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended AHSR this year! We had a great time hosting and sharing our beautiful little city with you, and we hope to see you again next year in Savannah! As we pass the torch to our colleagues in Georgia, you will probably receive another update or two from us, so stay tuned.

Here’s your post-conference round up:

  • Evaluation Forms. Thank you for completing and turning in your conference evaluation forms! We’re currently reviewing them, and will definitely use your feedback to make next year even better. If you didn’t turn in your form, but would still like to contribute, please email dfmchAHSR2017@fammed.wisc.edu. If you still have your evaluation form, go ahead and fill it out, scan it, and email it in.
  • Monona Terrace. Speaking of evaluations, if you loved this year’s venue and their delicious food, please consider taking a moment to leave feedback for them online. Google Reviews, Yelp, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, TripAdvisor, whatever you use, drop them some stars!
  • Lost and Found. There is only 1 item that was left behind and not accounted for. If you’re missing a charger, please email dfmchAHSR2017@fammed.wisc.edu. and we’ll figure out how to get it back to you.
  • Final Versions of Presentations. We’ve been getting emails asking about how attendees can get access to the final versions of the presentations. We’re currently working on options with our web designer for ways to post presentations under a password, so they’re not totally public. In the mean time, please feel free to contact presenters directly.
  • Wisconsin Researchers. If you’re in Wisconsin, and you’re wondering how to implement something that you saw at AHSR in your agency, consider contacting the WI Strengthening Treatment Access and Retention Quality Improvement (STAR-QI) Program. STAR-QI assists WI Behavioral Health Agencies using the NIATx Process Improvement Model. For more information, please contact Deanne Boss, Program Director, at Deanne.Boss@fammed.wisc.edu.
  • Next Year’s Hosts. For information on AHSR 2018, which will be held on October 17-19 in Savannah, please visit their website. They’ve already linked to AHSR conferences going back to 2014, and set dates!

If you have questions about AHSR 2017, we will continue making updates to our web site in the coming months.

If you’ve checked the web site for updates, but still have questions, please email dfmchAHSR2017@fammed.wisc.edu.

We hope to see you all again year,
