Chapter Regent Quarterly Letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends: 

2018 ACHE Congress
It is with enthusiasm that I assume the 3-year term for ACHE Regent for Massachusetts. I want to extend my thanks to Richard Corder, the outgoing Regent. During the pre-congress activity in Chicago in March it was evident that Richard had broad relationships at the national level and represented us well. Thanks to the large group who attended the Massachusetts dinner on Monday evening of Congress; of note in the room was the diversity of the group embracing age, ethnicity, culture, gender, and continuum of care. As your Regent and bridge between ACHE and the local chapter I can bring resources to focus on strategic issues such as growing the diversity and inclusion of healthcare leaders.
