In Florida, if you don’t vote in one national election and don’t return voter address confirmation mailers, you can be marked as an “inactive voter,” and—depending on your county—after two elections without voting you may be marked as an “ineligible voter,” and removed.

The Call for Proposals will be out by Nov. 1.

The Conference may be in-person in Orlando, virtual or a hybrid.
In 2019, Florida passed the Telehealth Bill which establishes standards of practice for telehealth services, including patient evaluations, record-keeping, and controlled substances prescribing. The bill also authorizes out-of-state health care practitioners to perform telehealth services for patients in Florida upon meeting certain eligibility requirements and registering with the department.
The Florida Department of Health has created a website that allows interested parties to sign up for updates and register to become an out-of-state telehealth provider. More information, please visit: flhealthsource.gov/telehealth
