Message from the President
The end of summer is gradually approaching and another change of season is slowly upon us. While so much has changed in the last 12 months, I believe we are all looking forward to the changes that bring us back to more normalcy.
To that end, I was thrilled to join the Emerging Leaders Committee on July 20th as they held a successful networking event at Motor City Brewing Works, where we all celebrated the opportunity to shake hands and hug our colleagues once again.
The excitement continues as we announce our first in-person Board meeting of the year, which will be our annual strategic planning session in September. More in-person networking opportunities are on tap for MCACHE this Fall with our Annual Member Meeting in November in which we look forward to electing our new Officers and safely reconnecting with our members.
Throughout this newsletter, we have highlighted the wonderful connections that are happening in our organizations and throughout our communities with MCACHE members leading the way. When I look at the growing diversity of our membership base, I am excited to see so many career paths outside the traditional structure supporting so many wonderful industries such as public health, academia, senior care, and healthcare IT such as telemedicine and cybersecurity. The pursuit across all continuums to provide the best in patient care is awe-inspiring – much like the drones delivering medicine in Rwanda that were developed by Zipline. How we continue to promote this connectivity and inclusivity throughout our Chapter’s activities and educational offerings will be exciting and hopefully very inspirational.
Thank you for your continued leadership and commitment to the healthcare profession. While you never know where inspiration may come from, chances are, your efforts have quietly inspired someone already today.
MCACHE stands committed to providing for the fair and equitable treatment of all people, in our communities, regardless of race, social-economic status, religious or political affiliations. Our times as leaders is now, to be part of the solutions, and use our collective voice and resources to advocate for innovative and sustainable change.
