Published: Wednesday, April 27, 2011 - 11:11

The pass is for new attendees only, so whether you just want to attend the pre-summit workshops, one day of the main summit, or the post-summit sessions and the site visit, this is now possible. Registration fees are also proportionally lower, e.g., May 13 is just $895.

Click here to register for a specific one-day pass and attend the largest gathering of senior-level executives responsible for deploying lean and Six Sigma in health care. This offer will close on Friday, April 29, 2011.
