February, 2019

We were excited to host this year’s Annual Meeting at Soldier Field with Dr. Jonathan Burroughs as our guest speaker, as well as recognizing some key healthcare contributors in the Chicago Metropolitan area.  These award winners were recognized for teamwork of service, innovation, and community health leadership.

Dr. Burroughs is a well-known speaker and excited to have him present on How We Can Succeed in Healthcare Transformation.  Within the changing healthcare landscape, everyone is being tasked with change and more importantly, how are we going to transform to be successful in the future healthcare marketplace.

The Chicago Health Executives Forum, CHEF, is the second largest chapter in the American College of Healthcare Executives.  CHEF’s membership is comprised of a wide variety of individuals from c-suite to early careerists.  CHEF offers programing in all areas whether it is networking, education, Fellow advancement, and C suite dinners.  We are excited to offer 2 new programs this year, MED U and Mentorship.  MED U is a program tailored to our physician leaders looking to attain further administrative experience as well as further preparation for the advancement to Fellow.  Our CHEF mentorship program will connect local mentors with mentees in the Chicagoland area.

I am extremely honored to be serving as your Chapter President for 2019.  I hope you take advantage of all the opportunities CHEF offers and look forward to seeing you at some of our events.  We are also looking for those who want to get more involved in our committees and organization, so please let us know.

Thank you for your work and leadership in the healthcare industry and we look forward to a great 2019.
