"RIBGH has been very effective at keeping the membership well informed about the state's legislative health care agenda, and proactive in encouraging employers to take action on these issues. They've been equally proactive in raising awareness of important business issues relating to health care — whether it be providing a forum to learn firsthand about Steward Health Care's arrival on the RI health care scene or organizing a panel of presenters to share workplace wellness best practices. Overall, I've been very pleased with RIBGH."
