"With guidance from colleagues and a vision of where we are heading as an organization, I chose three actions words as the theme during my tenure: “Lead, Empower, Transform.” Three simple words, but powerful, challenging, dynamic, and energizing. These are not new concepts. We had leaders since the start of mankind. We have heard “empowerment” a million times. Transformation of healthcare was reconceptualized, when congress passed and the President signed into law, the comprehensive health care legislation. These three powerful words will only have true meaning if we put them into action."

President, PNAA 2014-2016
