AAHPM, NHPCO and HPNA Virtual Quality Conference this week was geared toward those seeking to increase their knowledge, improve their competence, and enhance their professional practice in developing programs.

Academy staff member Julie Bruno was invited to address the ACCME Board of Directors on the impact of COVID-19 on AAHPM’s programs. Included in her message was a call to address the grief and distress of healthcare professionals and the communities they serve in the context of three pandemics: COVID-19; racial inequalities and unrest; and an economic downturn. AAHPM offers numerous COVID-19 resources for you and your team.
