Hello fellow IAHIA member. My name is Ana Tordilla, this year's IAHIA President. I would like to send a warm welcome to the new IAHIA Board 2017-2018. To the IAHIA members, students, and advocates, I want to take the opportunity to welcome you all.
There is something about a new year. It lies ahead bright with possibility and with dreams ready to be explored and attained. This year we envisioned and planned many educational sessions that would mold and guide future HIM generations to enlightened minds. Our IAHIA Purpose remains, "...to promote the art and science of health information management..." Education can be likened to a great big canvas and this year we would like IAHIA members, students, and advocates to throw as much paint as they can on the canvas of their education. I want to extend our "ask" for volunteers (active members and students) that can help with a couple of sub-committees. If you are interested in volunteering your time and expertise to the IAHIA purpose, please email me at IAHIA@CaliforniaHIA.org.
Looking forward to an exciting new year. Thank you in advance for the new Board and all volunteers for their valuable services.
