Many thanks for the opportunity to be a part of Healthcare Marketer’s Exchange during the past 25 years! It has truly been a pleasure to write for The Exchange. My contributions have been well-received by my colleagues and friends within the industry, many of whom, like me, have been life-long subscribers/readers of HME. The reader-generated articles and varying topics from month to month have kept my interest over the years. I find HME to be a welcome sight on my desk each month. I enjoy reading stories written by our colleagues on favorite vacation spots or restaurants and recipes, plus the articles are concise and accurate. I find them entertaining and very informative.

One of my articles was titled Our Hero: Commitment to Finding a Cure for Juvenile Diabetes (March 2005). The reception to the article was outstanding. I received emails and cards from friends and colleagues who had read the article with great interest. Now, 11 years later, my son Ryan, who is featured in the article, is 25, has completed his degree in marketing from Champlain College, and works for me here at Educational Resource Systems as a meetings and events manager. With regard to the ongoing crusade for the cure of juvenile diabetes, my family and I are still heavily involved with JDRF and were the recent recipients of “The Family of the Year Award” at this year’s Gala raising over $650,000 for Type 1 diabetes research.
