Timothy Burns, chief administrative officer of Glenwood Medical Associates P.C., attended the National Medical Group Management Association Conference in Denver from Oct. 11-14. The conference provided significant educational opportunities for the ever-changing health care industry.

“This is one of the best Medical Group Management Association conferences I have attended. The focus was on national health care reform that hopefully will open the doors to greater access for all Americans to a fairer health care system. It has been an honor and a privilege to be a member of MGMA and the college for over 18 years,” Burns said.
