Chapter of the Year Award


Congratulations to the 2017 Chapter of the Year, the Lehigh Valley Chapter.

Also congratulations to the second and third place winners, DelCo Chapter and Traverse City.

PAHCOM Chapters bring significant value to our industry through continued education and networking and all are to be commended for their efforts to share knowledge in their communities. Each year we recognize those who have taken extra steps to ensure medical managers are connected and stay informed of industry changes.
