The holidays are officially over, and WMSHP is back from our December break. Our January meeting will be on January 13th at Borgess Medical Center in the Lawrence Educational Center. The topic will be "Health Literacy: Making Information Understandable for Healthcare Consumers" presented by Marge Kars. This should be an interesting topic that is quite different than our usual monthly offerings. Please plan on trying to make it to Kalamazoo for this exciting topic.
You may have noticed that ballots for the WMSHP board were not sent out this year. We ended up with an extra board opening when Ben Mgboh stepped down to move to Ohio, and, therefore had an equal number of candidates to board positions. In order to save on printing and postage costs, the board elected to not send ballots out. Without further adieu, it is my pleasure to announce that Kali Shulz is the new president-elect. Andrea Goodrich, Angela Green, and Stacy Vaeth were all re-elected to new two-year terms. Dana Staat is returning to the board to finish out the final year of Ben’s term, and Becky Maynard has been newly elected to a board position. Please welcome the new and returning board members!
Finally, we have set a date for the 2011 WMSHP Spring Seminar. Mark your calendars for May 17th, and plan on joining us at the Prince Conference Center in Grand Rapids.
