Hello from the ECN Leadership Team!
Although the summer seemed to pass quickly, I hope everyone
found it a fun and enjoyable one. I look forward to welcoming fall and all of the exciting events ACHE of MA and the ECN have on the agenda!
In August, our chapter and its volunteers participated in another successful partnership with The Greater Boston Food Bank. Together with the ECN's Civic Engagement team, a total of 4,176 pounds of food were sorted - making 3,480 meals possible! If you are interested in joining these efforts, we have two more opportunities scheduled this year, so please consider signing up for Saturday, October 15th from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM now or Saturday, December 3rd soon.
Thank you to our volunteers who helped at the Greater Boston Food Bank in August!

This fall the ECN is kicking off the chapter's annual Mentorship Program that will run from October 2016 to April 2017. We had over 80 members apply to serve as mentors and/or mentees and want to thank them for expressing interest in donating their time to this valuable initiative! Matches will be made and announced in the coming weeks, and the Mentorship Program Committee looks forward to kicking things off on October 18th at the Kick-off Event to be held at Central Wharf Co.
Also on tap is the next Panel Series: Role of the Media in Shaping the Public's Perception of Healthcare to be held Tuesday, October 25th from 6:00 - 8:15 PM at Shiners Hospital in Boston, MA. The panelists include President & CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham, John Fogarty, FACHE; Executive Editor of STAT News, Rick Berke; and Professor & Interim Chair of the New England College of Business Master of Healthcare Management Program, Dr. Samuel Rindell, MBA, DBA. ACHE has awarded 1.5 Face-to-Face Education Credits for this program, and we hope you will be able to join the Professional Development Team and this panel of experts for networking and interactive discussion!
Our energetic and engaged team of ECN leaders continues to impress with their innovative ideas and determined dedication, and I want to thank them for their endless contributions to the ECN Leadership Team and ACHE of MA chapter. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank our ECN sponsors, and to welcome an exciting new partnership with Systems Evolution, Inc. (SEI)! The efforts of our team continue to be made possible by the encouragement of the ACHE of MA Board and these gracious supporters!
We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
