Chapter Regent Quarterly Letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends: 

I hope that your winter has been a good balance of enjoyable memories, time to reconnect with friends and family and a time to ready for another exciting, challenging and opportunity-filled year.

My term serving as your Regent will end at Congress this year, so this newsletter is my last. I am excited to be handing the reigns to my friend and colleague Karen Moore, FACHE. Karen serves as the Senior Vice President of Operations and CNO at Lawrence General Hospital, she is the former President of our Chapter, and has a very impressive healthcare leadership career.
