Chapter of the Year Award

Congratulations to the 2016 Chapter of the Year, the Lehigh Valley Chapter.

Also congratulations to the second and third place winners, DelCo Chapter and Pikes Peak.

PAHCOM Chapters bring significant value to our industry through continued education and networking and all are to be commended for their efforts to share knowledge in their communities. But each year we recognize those who have taken extra steps to ensure medical managers are connected and stay informed of industry changes.
