|Message from Your ACHE Regent - Fall 2018|
It has been a beautiful fall here in the Great Northwest and I hope you have had an opportunity to enjoy the weather – even the snowy Apple Cup that will be remembered for years to come. Whether you’re a Husky or a Cougar we can be proud of both our teams this season.
It was a pleasure to meet so many of you at our meet and mingle events, annual breakfast during the WSHA conference, or at the Museum of Flight for our Face-to-Face educational program focusing on population health. I hope you make 2019 the year to attend more events. Registration is open now for the Congress on Healthcare Leadership March 4-7 in Chicago.
As I write, the CDC announced that for a 3rd straight year our life expectancy has decreased erasing many of our gains this past century. Our nation needs healthcare leaders now more than ever to improve the health and resiliency of our communities. May we all show more compassion and caring for one another in our homes, neighborhoods, organizations, and our region.
In closing, I am pleased to announce I have joined the team at Overlake Medical Center & Clinics as the Director of Primary Care and Urgent Care. Our Eastside communities are growing and it’s a joy to work in the community I call home.
May you have a relaxing holiday season, ready to tackle new challenges in 2019.
Serving leaders who care,
Andrea Turner, MHS, FACHE
