FIRST,

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT YEAR!

I am so pleased to join the National Consortium for Building Healthy Academic Communities (NCBHAC) and work for you and with you to continue to move this organization forward. I will be working diligently behind the scenes, and occasionally in front of the crowd, to promote the consortium, build membership, institute new initiatives and generally improve any and all aspects of this progressive group that I can! I sincerely look forward to meeting as many of you as I can at the Summit in the spring and hearing your ideas and thoughts on how we can develop and grow the NCBHAC while helping you to construct, improve and refine health and wellness initiatives at your institution!
