Planning to Thrive So We Can Serve Others
Christine Ritchie, MD MSPH FACP FAAHPM
I cannot think of another time during my life when we have seen as many profound changes in health care as we are seeing now. The Affordable Care Act, new technologies, cultural and societal changes, and demographic shifts demand that healthcare providers be adaptable, wise, and bold.
The Academy is undertaking a comprehensive review of its strategic priorities and creating a plan to guide our efforts for the next 3-5 years. It is my hope that the strategic planning process will help the Academy enable you to thrive in the midst of all these changes. The country needs us to courageously confront the future if we are going to meet the needs of all those with serious illness.
