Aloha Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter,
I would like to start this article with a huge MAHALO to our members. The education committee deeply appreciates your support and dedication to this association. We are thankful for the opportunity to provide education opportunities and credits for our local members.
We has a successful first session of our 2020 ACHE-Hawaii Virtual seminar. We worked with national ACHE to create a Choice program that consisted of four 1.5-hours sessions on strategies for change management. Mr. Jim Austin did a phenomenal job leading the group through a virtual session with breakouts and great discussion. Our second session started on Tuesday, 11/24/2020 with Mr. Johnathan Burroughs leading a discussion about population health.
Our annual meeting will be held virtually on December 16 at 7:00AM. We will feature a panel of local healthcare leaders and will discuss COVID-19 and health disparities seen in our state. Attendees will be able to claim 1 QEC for attending this discussion.
We have also received notification that national ACHE will allow additional opportunities to gain F2F credits virtually in the first half of 2021. Our education committee is working hard to take advantage of these opportunities and will present additional virtual F2F options next year. Please visit the national ACHE website for additional virtual F2F opportunities.
Please have a safe and happy holiday season. We look forward to our new normal in 2021.
The Education Committee
