Change. It is what many of us seek to avoid. However, for most of the seriously injured workers we see, change is part of the recovery process. As Scott Peck reminded us in his book The Road Less Traveled, “life is difficult.” One of the ways we can make it less difficult is to be better prepared for “how to” help those facing changes in their daily life. I say all of this to remind us that those involved in providing health care and facilitating a claim are part of this change process.
As we look ahead, the IWCI board is pleased to announce the schedule for the 2018 annual seminar. The event will be held at the Marriott on the east side of Indianapolis on August 16 and 17. Since 1991, IWCI has gathered the major stakeholders in worker’s compensation in Indiana. In accordance with our mission, the 2018 annual seminar will feature sessions for attorneys, adjusters and claims examiners, nurse case managers, health care professionals, and employers. The keynote presentation on Friday will be Phil Walls, myMatrixx. Also, for those interested in sponsorships and a booth at the seminar, we will be announcing our “go live” date soon.
Our next big event is the Golf Outing at Ironwood Golf Course in Indianapolis. This event is always a great day and a wonderful way to have fun supporting the IWCI scholarships. The event is June 15. Please go to the website to signup for golfing and sponsorships. https://iwcigolf2018.eventbrite.com
