The Belmont University Jack C. Massey College of Business is partnering with Foundations Recovery Network, the leader in behavioral healthcare events, to create a track of learning that will become a part of the organization’s ongoing conference offerings across the country.
Lee Pepper, Foundations Recovery Network’s chief marketing officer, said, “Foundations Recovery Network is always looking to increase the number of opportunities for professional development within the behavioral health industry, and we have always offered continuing education for clinical professionals at our national conferences. We’re now proud to be partnering with Belmont University’s Jack C. Massey College of Business to provide an accredited business certificate tailored specifically for our industry.”
Pat Raines, dean of the Jack C. Massey College of Business, added, “We are proud to create innovative learning opportunities for our partners in Middle Tennessee. Our partnership with Foundations Recovery Network reflects our mission to be engaged with the communities we serve through value-added relationships. It’s a win-win relationship for us, helping others in their network by bringing business skills development workshops to their national conferences, having impact on the national recovery community.”
As the behavioral health industry grows, Belmont will offer attendees of Foundations Recovery Network conferences business certificate training in key areas such as ethics, entrepreneurship, operations and strategy. The Foundations Recovery Network series of learning will offer 36 hours of educational training in various certificate tracks, and upon completion of 18 hours, students will receive the Foundations Recovery Network/Jack C. Massey College of Business certificate and continuing education units (CEUs).
The first track on ethics will be led by Harold Fogelberg and will start this summer at the “Innovations in Behavioral Healthcare” conference in Nashville June 22-23. The next series will be offered during the “Moments of Change” gathering in West Palm Beach, Florida Sept. 28 – Oct. 1, 2015.
