|Message from Your ACHE Regent|
There is a lot of inspiration around us with the Winter Olympics in our rear view mirror and the 2018 Congress on Healthcare Leadership coming up in Chicago March 26 - 29.
The Olympics always remind me of the balance of body, will, and mind. Watching our athletes compete teaches us tenacity, accepting failure, and getting back up and going after it again. May we all help our patients find the athlete in them as we work to improve the health of our populations.
If you are not able to join us in Chicago visit ache.org to subscribe to the Inside Congress blog or follow @ACHEConnect on Twitter and #ACHECongress. Our annual meeting is a great opportunity to connect with leaders from around the country (and the world) and to reconnect with our graduate programs that often host alumni events the week of Congress.
I close with hearty congratulations to the Washington State Healthcare Executive Forum (WSHEF) for receiving a Chapter of Merit award from ACHE. The chapter is recognized for advancement programming and having a record number of eligible members advance to Fellow. If you have been thinking about board certification and keep putting it off - make this your year to add FACHE to your name!
I look forward to seeing you in Chicago.
Serving leaders who care,
Andrea Turner, MHS, FACHE
