Look Back, Look Forward
Business colleagues and personal friends know that I’m generally an eternally optimistic, always forward-looking kind of person.
I loved the days our management team spent in early December doing 3-year strategic planning, brainstorming amazing new educational programs and formats, events, technologies and advocacy initiatives.
Before all our focus shifts to the excitement of “what’s next”, the start of the New Year provides an equally important opportunity to look back at a remarkable 2022.
I can’t blame you if, in the flurry of holiday activities and in-box full of e-wishes, you might have missed the link at the bottom of our holiday e-card summarizing all that we – with the support of our incredible members, partners, industry leaders and friends – were able to accomplish last year.
Take a moment to just scan this list – it’s really a testament to what we can achieve working together to create and leverage research, education and advocacy that moves healthcare forward.
Thanks for the role you have played in making this all possible.
And now I have one small, easy favor to ask…
If you’re an Amazon user, would you please consider making the non-profit Center for Health Design a beneficiary of your Amazon purchases? By signing up for AmazonSmile, every time you shop, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to the charitable organization of your choice – no fees, costs or fuss.
That may seem like a small amount, but in a community as large as ours, it could really add up and help support our healthcare design industry work.
Just go to smile.amazon.com, select Center for Health Design as your charity, and you’re done! Next time you shop, start at smile.amazon.com and the rest is automatic.
Thanks again for a wonderful year together and a new year of exciting new adventures and accomplishments!
