President's Message - May 2022
My name is Cathy Gray, and I am incredibly excited to officially begin my first term as President of VAHRMM, replacing the leadership of our amazing outgoing President, Isabel Moore.
I have been a VAHRMM Board member and held the position of Secretary for the past several years. I am a Registered Nurse who currently works in Value Analysis for Sentara Healthcare.
As incoming President, my goal is to promote the value of VAHRMM while looking for new and innovative ways for our members to connect with one another.
The last two years have been challenging for our membership as the pandemic has wreaked havoc on both our personal and professional lives. For VAHRMM the epidemic resulted in both our 2020 and 2021 conferences to be canceled. Like many other organizations this has caused a disconnect with our membership.
I am pleased to say that the VAHRMM Board has a renewed commitment to create the best possible conference for 2022. Our theme this year is Innovate, Engage and Connect which mirrors that of our national organization, AHRMM. It will be held October 5th through October 7th at The Westin in Virginia Beach. Although the venue is familiar the agenda will be unique and include a few surprises.
This year’s conference will focus on celebrating and honoring Supply Chain staff and Vendors who in spite of a challenging environment and the scarcity of basic patient supplies worked to ensure patient care continued.
On behalf of the VAHRMM Board we look forward to seeing all of you at the October conference. More information will be provided as we get closer to the conference.
