President's Message Summer 2021

Mary Anne Weidner, MHA, MT, (AMT/ASCP), HACP (CIHQ)

As I end my second year as President of the STC-ACHE, I notice that our Chapter, and the ACHE at large, has never been more relevant and important for those of us in healthcare and those related fields in Texas and across the nation and world.  I've come to think of the ACHE network as one very large, multi-national, best in class team.  A team that provides abundant opportunities to learn, teach, mentor, and share top quality information.  A team that enables us to advocate, brainstorm, give back to our communities, meet, network and socialize with friends and colleagues all over the country and world.


Dear Members and Colleagues,

As I end my second year as President of the STC-ACHE, I notice that our Chapter, and the ACHE at large, has never been more relevant and important for those of us in healthcare and those related fields in Texas and across the nation and world.  I've come to think of the ACHE network as one very large, multi-national, best in class team.  A team that provides abundant opportunities to learn, teach, mentor, and share top quality information.  A team that enables us to advocate, brainstorm, give back to our communities, meet, network and socialize with friends and colleagues all over the country and world.

Reflecting back I am proud of our Chapter’s successes over the last year, particularly in providing more opportunities for meaningful engagement of our members and introducing innovative programming formats and topics, and providing professional development and outreach opportunities.  In the year ahead, I know we will continue these initiatives, as well as adding programs for the different stages of your career, virtual programs and events held in collaboration with other chapters in our state and beyond.

As I write this last message I would like to take this opportunity to express my best wishes and sincere thanks to everyone, especially our Chapter Board of Directors and look forward to what the future brings for our Chapter under a new leader, Kimberly Tansey.

Thank you members for your continued participation and enthusiasm in our professional community, and for your incredible support and advice.  Wishing you a bright and successful 2022, and look forward to seeing you soon.


Mary Anne Weidner, President

Vice President's Message Summer 2021

Since moving to South Texas, I am always surprised when September rolls around and people start talking about autumn.  The changing of the seasons is much more subtle here than back east, with less 100-degree days (in a row, at least) and more school buses getting back on the road.  With fall upon us, we will be spending more time indoors and around groups of people.  In the healthcare sector, that means a potential increase in transmission rates and a continued increase in our admitted patient population.  Now is not the time to stop the preventive measures, nor is it the time to send confusing messages to our community.  We must be united about our support to follow the science and promote access to vaccines and personal protective gear for everyone, including those most at risk.

For those who attended ACHE Congress this year, you may have seen panelists speak about getting out into the community to deliver education, medications, supplies, and vaccines.  It takes out-of-the-box thinking to deliver healthcare to all, and South Texas is poised to be a leader in this forward thinking.  A group of over 40 volunteers heard the call to improve the living conditions for a vulnerable population in our own backyard and spent an August day with SAMMinistries cleaning, painting, organizing, and building toys.  Their mission to reduce homelessness in San Antonio is aligned well with our mission to improve the health of our community, and our partnership with this charitable organization is one we will continue to strengthen over the coming years.  Thank you to all who dedicated their time to make this event a success!

We continue to host many events virtually and gradually to introduce some in person elements.  Our upcoming Student and Early Careerist Symposium will be hosted virtually for the first time ever, while our fall education event will be our traditional face-to-face style.  The Rio Grande Valley local programs council is hosting a virtual event, and we will be starting our second Board of Governors’ exam review series virtually soon.  Check our website or Facebook site for updated information.

Your Board is working to make the South Texas Chapter a pillar of excellence in this community. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or wish to become further involved.  Be well, and I hope to see you soon!

Message from Your ACHE Regent - Summer 2021

As I write this newsletter, I realize we are still facing the same concerns and safety precautions that we were this time last year. While we all hoped we would be “back to normal” or some semblance of normal, it seems with the continual rise in COVID-19 cases; we are still facing the need to social distance and limit the number and sizes of in-person gatherings. While this somewhat hinders our ability to hold educational and social events, both chapters have become experts at these limited forums, and I know both will continue to provide excellent educational and social events in keeping with the safety of all our members.

While I am saddened to say my term as Regent will be ending in March 2022, here is an opportunity for one of you to take on the role as Regent for Central and South Texas. If you are interested in applying, you can find out more details in the Elected Leaders Area on the ACHE National Web page at https://www.ache.org/. The deadline for candidates is Friday, 27 August. If you have specific questions, you can email me at ldowns@uiwtx.edu or call me at 210-718-2222.

As I close, I want to thank all healthcare workers who are back in the middle of taking care of those who are sickened by COVID-19. I also ask that you, please get vaccinated if you can so we can slow the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the stress on our healthcare workers and healthcare facilities. Spread love, not germs.

Healthcare Leadership - Thoughts From My Foxhole

MG David Rubenstein, FACHE, Past Chairman, ACHE

Shared Thoughts from Forbes

In recognition of its 100th anniversary, Forbes Magazine published a series of 100 essays from business leaders.  The magazine editors then distilled each essay to a single quote: 100 quotes. 

This month, without commentary, I’ve selected 23 of these equally meaningful quotes to share with you.


Shared Thoughts from Forbes

A Four Minute Read


Howdy, all.  I trust you and yours are well as we continue to battle COVID-19.  All of us in health and healthcare are involved in the battle.  Though you may not hear it often or at all; thank you!  Thank you for all you and your organizations are doing to keep your communities healthy and to return the ill to better health.

I came across an article that, admittedly, is four years old.  But the messages are timeless.

Messages?  Plural?


In recognition of its 100th anniversary, Forbes Magazine published a series of 100 essays from business leaders.  The magazine editors then distilled each essay to a single quote: 100 quotes.  This month, without commentary, I’ve selected 23 of these equally meaningful quotes to share with you.

Don’t be turned off that these are quotes with a business bias.  I believe each of us as health and healthcare executives can find how each quote relates to our organizational duties and personal mission, vision, and values.  We just need to take a moment to find the link.

You can find the entire list of 100 quotes at the following link or, if you don’t click on links, search “forbes 100 quotes abram brown.”

Chapter Happenings

Diversity Committee Director Update

Diversity Director, Jake Reyna-Casanova

Can you believe it's already September?! Before we know it, we'll be saying Happy Holidays! However, before we start thinking about all the gifts we have to get, I am excited to share some updates as the Diversity Director and highlight Hispanic Heritage Month.  


Dear ACHE-STC Members,

Can you believe it's already September?! Before we know it, we'll be saying Happy Holidays! However, before we start thinking about all the gifts we have to get, I am excited to share some updates as the Diversity Director and highlight Hispanic Heritage Month.  

Recently, the Diversity Committee met to discuss some upcoming ideas we would like to implement for our chapter. First and foremost, we are in the process of creating a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion statement for the chapter that will go on our website. The statement will help us expand on our DEI initiatives and be more inclusive for everyone to benefit from our chapter opportunities fully. Next, as we are able, we would like to start reviewing and collecting additional data about our membership to ensure we embody DEI in all that we do. Ideally, we would also share this information with our members to be more transparent and share best practices for increasing inclusivity at any institution. Additionally, for our next quarterly chapter newsletter, we would like to highlight an organization or individual to recognize the work that it/they are doing to incorporate more DEI to better the health of our community. Lastly, we will be connecting with other diverse membership groups to increase the overall diversity of members across all professional groups. This is already in the works as we plan for our October 1st education session collaborating with the San Antonio Nursing Consortium. As we move forward and continue developing our chapter DEI initiatives, I invite each one of you to be part of the Diversity Committee. Beginning next month, we will be meeting every first Thursday to connect, update each other on our progress, and share new ideas. Please, reach out to me at jcasanova14@utexas.edu to be added to the meeting invite!

As we enter the second half of September, I would like to highlight National Hispanic Heritage Month, which lasts from September 15th to October 15th. We recognize the many contributions and influences that Hispanic Americans had on the US's history, culture, and achievements during this time. As a fun fact, the commemorative month begins on the 15th because it is the independence day of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. If you'd like to participate in the celebration of this month, you can do things such as cook a classic Latin American dish, support Latinx-owned businesses, listen to music by Hispanic artists, or even visit the Frida Kahlo Oasis at the Botanical Garden! While this is a concise list, there are many things you can do throughout the month, and we invite you to share with us on any one of our social media channels so we can also recognize you!

Here are five Hispanic American figures that made great strides in Medicine to learn about this Hispanic Heritage Month:


1. Carlos Juan Finlay, MD – Pioneer in researching and finding the transmission of yellow fever in 1881

2. Severo Ochoa, MD – First Hispanic American to win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1959

3. Ildaura Murillo-Rohde, PhD, RN – Created the National Association of Hispanic Nurses in 1975

4. Antonia Novella, MD – First Hispanic and first woman to serve as the US Surgeon General from 1990-1993

5. Helen Rodriguez Trías, MD – First Latina President of the American Health Association in 1993


Sincerely,

Jake Reyna-Casanova, MPH
Diversity Director

STC-ACHE Local Program Councils

Local Program Councils are critical extensions of the ACHE Chapters into the outlying areas of chapter boundaries. They provide members located in distant locations from the main chapter headquarters the opportunity to participate in similar chapter activities as found in the larger chapter location without requiring traveling extended amounts of distance and time. LPCs provide Face-to-Face Educational events for credit, hence assisting members in meeting their ACHE educational credentialing requirements. LPCs also provide opportunities for members in networking get-togethers and volunteer events in the community,  such as Food Bank and Beach Clean-Ups, thus serving their communities while acquiring ACHE credits for charitable endeavors. All LPC events importantly provide folks with social networking, allowing folks to get to know each other, share ideas, commensurate, and make new friends or renew friendships, among other benefits. All events are open to participation by ACHE members from anywhere in the South Texas Chapter area.

LPCs in the South Texas Chapter-ACHE, are organized in two locations: the Coastal Bend LPC and the Rio Grande Valley LPC.

The Coastal Bend LPC is currently chaired by Krystal O'Brien, MHA.  She is in Corpus Christi and serves as Physician Business Consultant, WellMed Medical Management, Inc., office phone (361) 371-6440, email: KrO'Brien@wellmed.net.

The Rio Grande Valley LPC is co-chaired by Rashmi Chandran, DPT, MBA, PGDMLS, CSS. She is System Director, Rehab and Therapy Services, South Texas Health System/UHS, office phone (956) 632-4670, email: rashmibhusare@gmail.com.

Rashmi's co-chair in the RGV is Luis Calderon, LVN, CDP. He is Regional Director of Business Development at ABRI Healthcare, office/cell phone (956) 624-4639, email: luis.calderon@abrihs.com.

These Healthcare LPC leaders would like to see many people participating in the events that are held within the LPC area. A lot of effort and time is put into organizing and presenting these events for the benefit of healthcare professionals in the area. They would also, if some folks can also find the inclination and time, appreciate local folks volunteering to serve on their committee and assist in organizing and implementing events in their respective areas.

Perhaps you are a leader in a local chapter and would like to share that experience. Or perhaps you have attended a thought-provoking ACHE seminar and want to share what you learned with your colleagues. This newsletter is a great venue for you to be published (and, by the way, earn ACHE Volunteer Service points). Members are encouraged to submit news and healthcare articles of interest to the South Texas healthcare community. We would really enjoy hearing from you!

Get Involved in Your Local ACHE Chapter!

I am writing to encourage you to get involved in your local South Texas Chapter of ACHE.  Years ago, I started as a student representative while earning my MHA and MBA from Army-Baylor University, and from there evolved into committee membership, holding two director positions, and now as your vice president.  My goals this year are simple: support our board of directors as they work to make this the premier organization for healthcare executives’ education and networking; and to increase participation within our committees.  Succession planning is the cornerstone of any successful long-standing organization, and the best way to do that is to get members involved at the ground level. What are you interested in?  I am listing our committees below. If you are interested in getting involved or want to know more before you commit, please contact me.

Advancement
Communications & Marketing
Diversity
Membership
Mentoring
Outreach (Local Programs Councils)
Philanthropy & Community Relations

Student Affairs

As an all-volunteer organization,
we are successful because of our members. I hope the year of social distancing has spurred some interest in increased community activism.  I welcome your questions and comments about how we can help you serve.
