Board provides risk oversight to the Company through the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee monitors financial, healthcare compliance,
and regulatory risks. This oversight process takes place through discussions at committee meetings with the members of senior
management who are responsible for the Company’s risk management policies and procedures. In addition, the Audit Committee
regularly meets in a private session with the Company’s independent auditors.

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for identifying and recommending to the Board candidates to serve
as members of the Board. In carrying out this responsibility, the committee has adopted a written policy setting forth the minimum
qualifications to serve as a director of the Company. These minimum qualifications emphasize integrity, independence, experiences,
strength of character, mature judgment and technical skills applicable to the Company. The committee will also consider whether
the candidate is able to represent all shareholders of the Company fairly and equally, without favoring or advancing any particular
shareholder or other constituency of the Company.
committee also seeks Board members from diverse professional backgrounds who combine a broad spectrum of experience and expertise
with a reputation for integrity. Directors should have experience in positions with a high degree of responsibility, be leaders
in the companies or institutions with which they are affiliated, and/or be selected based upon contributions they can make to
the Company and Board. We do not have a formal policy regarding diversity, but the Board is committed to a diverse membership.
In selecting nominees, the Board does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, disability,
or sexual orientation.
committee may approve, in its discretion, the candidacy of a nominee who does not satisfy all of these requirements if it believes
the service of the nominee is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.
committee has written procedures for identifying and evaluating candidates for election to the Board. The material elements of
that process are as follows:
committee gives due consideration to the re-nomination of incumbent directors who desire to continue their service and who
continue to satisfy the committee’s criteria for membership on the Board.|
there is no qualified and available incumbent or if there is a vacancy on the Board, the committee will identify and evaluate
new candidates and will solicit or entertain recommendations for nominees from other Board members and the Company’s
management. The committee also may engage a professional search firm to assist it in identifying qualified candidates.|
