From the Desk of the KAHCE President

Trenton Stringer

I hope everyone is in the midst of planning vacations or family get togethers as vaccination rates continue to rise and we slowly return to pre-COVID norms. I’m writing this article in a much different state of mind since my last summer article. No doubt our teams have endured a lot of changes and challenges over the course of this pandemic, but our efforts in healthcare have not been in vain.

A few months ago, ACHE held the first virtual Congress. The topics and speakers were really engaging – I think my personal favorite was the ZipLine presentation about the drone delivery of medical supplies in Africa. It will be interesting to see how these technological advancements continue to mold our industry.

If you haven’t attended any of the KAHCE virtual events, our Education Committee will be putting on a couple more before our Fall Education Conference that is taking place on September 8. We are following KHA’s lead on whether this event will be in-person or virtual. We are planning for both, but hoping for in-person.

Elections will be coming up in the fall, so please be on the lookout for the email with the new slate of officers. If you are looking for opportunities to get more involved in KAHCE, we also have several committees that are looking for additional members. We would be happy to have you on our teams!

Finally, I want to thank our Board of Directors for guiding us through the past year and a half. It is because of their quick efforts that we were able to adapt and still offer value to our members. Hope everyone is doing well. See you soon!

Trenton Stringer
KAHCE President
