Spring/Summer 2019

It was nice to see so many Hawai'i Pacific Chapter members at Congress this year! There were many excellent sessions on topics ranging from wellness to capitation - all the learnings and takeaways were so interesting and informative. I can't wait to see what next year has in store for us as leaders. I encourage you all to work with your respective employers to attend Congress next year as healthcare is changing at a rapid rate, and you're sure to find the event beneficial. Recommended sessions include topics on inclusion, diversity, physician leaders, wellness, burnout and much more. Also, be sure to take advantage of all networking opportunities. This is a time for you to build relationships nationally that will serve you well into the future.

Additionally, don't forget to carve out a little time during your week to log onto the website to review current events, the Leader-to-Leader Rewards Program and new articles published regularly to support your lifelong learning. Related, please contact me at if you would like to suggest any leaders in the chapter for an award at the annual breakfast. I am looking for those individuals who have gone the extra mile for patients, a colleague, the chapter and/or their community.

In closing, I encourage you all to volunteer as mentors in our community so we can continue to embrace lifelong learning and help foster those who will be leading the healthcare of tomorrow.
