The Annual ASHE Conference, held in Indianapolis earlier this month, saw more than 4,000 people in attendance. KSHE had strong representation with more members present than I have ever witnessed at one of these events. On behalf of KSHE, I formally accepted the Platinum Elite Chapter Award which you all made possible with your support of the Energy to Care program. I was honored to address the other Chapters in our Region and share the awesome, progressive programs Kentucky has developed and initiated. The members of KSHE should be very proud that Kentucky leads the Nation on several fronts. I can honestly say from my heart that I am very proud and thankful for the opportunity to serve you and to work with such a dynamic Board who are dedicated to improving Healthcare.
