Presentations will be offered from PROS program leaders, practitioners and participants, NYSOMH staff and content experts from across the country in the most exemplary approaches to delivering integrated, recovery-oriented services.

In 2012, as our healthcare and behavioral health systems prepare for an unprecedented and historic level of change, PROS programs will have the opportunity to meet and work with the latest players in this evolving process, including health home and managed care network leaders, policy makers and content experts.
