As President of the Arizona Rural Health Association, I am honored to have accepted the responsibility to serve as the president of AzRHA for the 2022-2023 year. I want to express my sincere gratitude for this opportunity.
It has been a challenging couple of years with the public health emergency. I am heartened by the strong and focused commitment of the membership that continue to serve on the AzRHA Board of Directors. AzRHA provides an excellent platform for members to develop and contribute to communities they serve. I look forward to working toward excellence with the AzRHA Board of Directors as I have known this team to care as I do. We serve because we care.
My goal is to grow, strengthen and energize the AzRHA membership, provide meaningful educational opportunities for the AzRHA membership, increase membership communication continue to advocate for rural health policy during my service as Board President. We will work on putting extra effort into outreach.
I am sincerely grateful for past president, Elizabeth Hall-Lipsy, for her outstanding leadership during her tenure as the Board President. Her commitment and leadership inspire me.
Lastly, I am genuinely grateful for the trust to serve, and I will work to fulfill the goals and mission of AzRHA. I thank you for your support, guidance, and encouragement.
