Dear ACHE South Florida Members & Colleagues:

I hope you are doing well during these uncertain times. I wanted to share some information on various ACHE activities that may impact some of you. As always, please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

The ACHE of South Florida Board salutes all of our local healthcare heroes who are actively working to keep patients and the community safe and healthy.

THANK YOU for what you do!
