M.H.A. Students, Alumni and Faculty Connect at ACHE Congress
This April, health management students, alumni and faculty from Saint Louis University attended the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) 2022 Congress on Healthcare Leadership in Chicago. Participants took part in a plethora of education, training and mentoring opportunities related to the field of health care management.
The event offered an inspiring opportunity to connect with new peers and hear insights on transforming the industry from some of the brightest leaders and innovators in U.S. health care. The conference also focused on addressing inequity, developing a deeper understanding of social issues that impact physical and mental health, and pushing technological devices and coding to reach for a better tomorrow.
Attendees continued a lifelong journey to share knowledge gained in classroom and boardroom settings and earned from colleagues while taking an active role in improving the health care industry.
"ACHE provides faculty the opportunity to learn about the most recent trends in health administration education and for students to build a network as they start their professional lives," said Michael Rozier, S.J., Ph.D., assistant professor of health management and policy with a secondary appointment in the Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics at SLU. "The alumni reception is always a highlight of the year for us and gives the department a chance to reconnect with our graduates and for students and alumni to build relationships with one another."
