Spring 2016Members in Action
by Dianne Baker, CPHIMS, Board Member and Marketing and Communications Chairperson and Newsletter Editor
James Brady, PhD, FHIMSS, Past Chapter President and Area Chief Information Officer, Kaiser Permanente Orange County, continued his great work in supporting our Members to gain their CPHIMS designation by teaching a CPHIMS Prep course at HIMSS16.
Our congratulations to Board Member Bella Zaghi, MPH, CHTS-CP, who was just awarded her HIMSS Fellowship, FHIMSS, in this month! Bella began her involvement with HIMSS SoCal over six years ago after she attended her first Chapter event. She was a HIMSS Foundation Master Student Award Winner. With our Chapter, she has been Chairperson for the Academic Alliance Conference Committee and led a group of students and early careerists in organizing a blockbuster event featuring the top Health IT executives in the industry. She then continued to Chair for Academic Alliance for four years and she is now serving as VP of Administration. Join us in congratulating Bella on this great achievement!
