Q3 2017 Newsletter - Advocacy
By Shanti Wilson & John Conklin, Advocacy Chairs, HIMSS Northern and Southern California Chapters
The HIMSS Chapter Advocacy Roundtable held a national event at the HIMSS Innovation Center http://www.himssinnovationcenter.org/ to collaborate and share best practices. Our Northern and Southern California Advocacy Chairs, Shanti Wilson, and John Conklin, represented California. The chairs brought back best practices on advocating to local legislators, building value-based advocacy initiatives and collaborating across the California to support health IT legislation that impacts you, our members. The chairs are incorporating those best practices into the 2017/18 advocacy plan for California and look forward to sharing these with you at our upcoming events in NorCal and SoCal!
