BWC Medical & Health Symposium
Discussing health issues and programs that matter to Ohio’s workers, employers and their communities

The Fourth Annual Ohio Workers' Compensation Medical & Health Symposium a success, breaks attendance records

More than 800 health-care and legal professionals registered to attend our first ever Friday, Saturday conference in April. For the second year, the symposium offered two educational tracks – the provider staff forum and provider clinical education. Our Administrator/CEO Stephanie McCloud kicked off the forum on Friday, and she spoke again at the provider clinical education to an appreciative audience. 

For our 2019 symposium, we offered continuing education for attorneys, chiropractors, nurses, occupational and physical therapists, rehabilitation counselors (CCM, CDMS and CRC*), physicians and psychologists. Experts nationwide are learning about our innovative approaches and programs in caring for Ohio’s workers. 

Attendees received up to 12 continuing education credit for these professions: CCM, CDMS, CLE, CME, CRC, Chiropractor, OT, PT, Psychology and RN.

Exhibitor opportunities

We invite you to exhibit with us at the 2020 Ohio Workers' Compensation Medical & Health Symposium. This two-day symposium is a great opportunity to have quality face-to-face interaction with Ohio BWC medical staff, hundreds of Ohio health-care providers, office staff and office administrators, who are decision makers eager to hear how your services and solutions can benefit their treatment of Ohio's injured workers.

If you want your message to reach health-care providers who treat or manage patients with work-related injuries, then plan to exhibit at our symposium.

Our event has a projected attendance of 800 professionals who serve Ohio's injured workers in these fields.
