Message from the Chapter President

Aloha Everyone,

We have some very exciting things happening in our chapter and I want to mention a few. We had the very successful meeting with Ian Lazarus speaking on total quality management and six-sigma, he is an outstanding speaker and we had great attendance.

 

Aloha Everyone,

We have some very exciting things happening in our chapter and I want to mention a few. We had the very successful meeting with Ian Lazarus speaking on total quality management and six-sigma, he is an outstanding speaker and we had great attendance.

Additionally we have opened a dialog with the University of Hawaii, Shidler School of Business, for co-developing a MBA in Healthcare Management degree/concentration to satisfy the unique market needs of our community. Coral Andrews, FACHE; Martha Smith, FACHE; and LTC Tanya Peacock, FACHE are leading this project. They have shown incredible leadership and vision and are helping build community interest in the program. 

We had our ACHE chapter social and FACHE discussion which was a great session that offered members an opportunity to learn and ask questions about the road to fellowship. I want to thank LCDR Robert Rawleigh, FACHE, and his committee for the exceptional job lining up educational sessions for the chapter. Our goal continues to be to bring relevant educational opportunities here in Hawaii that satisfies face-to-face credit requirements. We also want to thank all of our great sponsors for making this possible. 

We have a need for volunteers for several committees—newsletter, sponsorship, and education. This is an excellent time to get involved in our chapter.  We want your voice heard so please come share your innovative ideas! We have two members leaving Hawaii this summer and they will be greatly missed. Thank you to LCDR Rawleigh and LTC Tanya Peacock for all the dedication and commitment they have provided to our chapter.

We are very proud of our outstanding newsletter. We hope you are enjoying it and we welcome ideas for articles and feedback from you. This quarter's articles are focused on healthcare challenges faced in Hawaii. Thanks to all of you for your continuing support and participation. Please take advantage of our educational offerings and don’t hesitate to let us know how we can be of service to you.

Respectfully,

Darlena Chadwick, BSN, MSN, FACHE
