Dear HIPAA Summit Attendee,|
I write to announce several additional special activities and sessions which will be offered during the Seventh National HIPAA Summit, September 14 - 16, 2003, in Baltimore, MD. See www.HIPAASummit.com.
SPECIAL PERFORMANCE AWARD WINNING BEATLE TRIBUTE BAND STRAWBERRY FIELDS AT NETWORKING RECEPTION:
The Mid Atlantic Health Initiative (MAHI), www.mahicentral.org, will sponsor the Summit's opening networking reception on the evening of Monday, September 15, 2003 featuring Strawberry Fields, an award winning Beatle tribute band made up of members of the hot Broadway musical Beatlemania. The critics rave:
SUNDAY SPECIAL PLENARY SESSION:
- If you like the Beatles, you'll LOVE Strawberry Fields.
- They really do look and sound like the Beatles!
- These four lads weren't 'Those fab four', but they sure looked and sounded just like them!
- The band goes so far as to use the same equipment the Beatles used, from amplifiers to guitars.
