Fall 2014Academic Alliance Community - Save the Dates!

by Bella Zaghi

AACThe Academic Alliance Community is focused on “Bridging the gap between academia and industry” and has been expanding its engagement with local student organizations and the academic community in Southern California since 2008. By integrating university thought leaders and students, the SoCal HIMSS chapter is creating and fostering a new set of thought leaders to meet the future challenges and issues in HIT.

We welcome you to support and participate in these important activities coming up over the next few months. Please also visit our Chapter website and Academic Alliance page for more details.
