Chapter News

06/05/2019 - Dayton Chapter - May News
Our May meeting featured Cara Powers, Vice President and Deputy Chief Legal Officer at Premier Health. Her informative presentation was about “Work, Life, Balance”. As an attorney, wife, mother of four and business owner, she provided several basic tips to help us attain the balance we need in our busy world. Some suggestions included: • WORK HARD! • Play, travel, enjoy time away from the office. • BELIEVE in yourself. • Count your blessings. Say aloud, “Life is Good!” • BUILD UP your team (work and at home). Final plans are being made for our mini-seminar, which will be held August 28. Our speaker is Joseph Valvona, Jr. He will present the concepts and tools of Lean Six Sigma and how to apply this methodology to improve patient satisfaction, quality of care, and efficiency. He will also discuss ways to reduce waste, rework, and waiting time. Attendees will receive white belt certification at the completion of the event.

04/19/2019 - Annual Seminar
Our annual seminar was held April 17 and was a huge success! Each year we have “Casual for a Cause”, selecting a local charity and allowing attendees to come in casual attire if they make a donation. This year, we selected LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA. Free, 12-week programs are designed to meet the needs of adults with cancer before, during and after treatment. LIVESTRONG® at the Y helps cancer survivors’ move beyond illness to reclaim wellness in spirit, mind and body. We are happy that we raised $1000! We had 20 vendors participate in this year’s seminar and are grateful for their time and generosity! Todd Baker from the Ohio State Medical Association provided informative updates including Ohio Medicaid changes and Medical Marijuana. Our afternoon was filled with energy and entertainment as we welcomed Candy Whirley! Candy is the author of “It Takes 4 to Tango” and attendees learned about the Chameleon, Lion, Lamb and Owl categories to help understand ourselves, our co-workers and others we communicate with. Attendees also worked in groups and applied Candy’s communication skills using the ACE and DESC approaches.
