Please note the following updates regarding the status of Best Friends™ Master Training for the 2020 season.

Schedules are changing due to the rapidly evolving conditions around the COVID-19 outbreak. The leadership at Health Professions Press (HPP) and the Best Friends Expert Leaders continue to review information on an ongoing basis from federal, state, and local authorities, as well as public health institutions, about the COVID-19 situation. Our overriding concern is for the health and safety of not just those planning to attend any of our Best Friends™ trainings, but also for the colleagues and elders to whom you would be returning.

If you have already registered or are considering registering to attend one of the Best Friends™ Training Institutes, please be aware that

  • The training originally scheduled for May 12−13, 2020, is rescheduled for August 4‒5, 2020, in Tucson, Arizona. New details are posted on the training page (click here). Please contact us by email ( if you have questions or need further information.
  • The discounted Early Bird registration deadline has been extended to July 14 for the Best Friends™ Training Institute on September 15−16, 2020, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (click here for event details).

For the protection of our own HPP team, we are operating remotely. All aspects of our business are functioning smoothly and safely, and you can continue to reach us by email or phone.
