    I attended Article 9 training in Show Low. The trainer was Michelle Hale. She was absolutely awesome! That was THE BEST Arion/DDD/DES training I've had in many years! She clearly explained and answered all my questions. Since I provide care for my grandson, I felt that many of the rules did not really apply but the way Michelle explained them, I have changed my mind...not only how they may pertain to my grandson but in helping to understanding other DDD members and providers as well. Thank you so much!
