Message from THEF's President

In addition to providing our traditional education and networking events for 2015, our board’s list of goals also included a follow-up day-long event as well as partnering with new groups in our healthcare community.

Our day-long event highlighting transformative care took place on September 17th at Embassy Suites in Cary. We had three panels and moderators lined up to cover transformative care partnerships in the community, with physicians, and in population health.

We are very grateful for the financial support of our sponsors—LabCorp and Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, as well as our partners—North Carolina Association of Healthcare Quality. Also, this event would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our THEF subcommittee members who worked for months to bring this idea to fruition—Cameron Ebron and Robert Martin.

All chapter members should have received an email from us regarding the opportunity to nominate for THEF’s 2016 Board.  If you’re interested, please send an email to

Fourth quarter is always a busy time for THEF in hosting some great events, but it’s also the time when we begin planning for the next year. Jessica Landin, president-elect will be moving into the leadership role in January, and our chapter will be in great and capable hands. In December, we will be hosting our board’s planning retreat—an opportunity to get to know our new board members, build on successes of previous years, and set goals for the year to come. Between now and early December, I would encourage you to share any ideas you might have on programs that you would like to see or areas for improvement that you think we need to address.

Thank you for your support of Triangle Healthcare Executives’ Forum, and since this will be my last president’s letter before late December, I would like to wish you the happiest of holiday seasons!

-Neil Kinard, FACHE
THEF President
