The executive team of Health Bridges has not met face-to-face for over 18-months. That changed this past weekend when we got together for three intense days of meetings.
It was so nice to reconnect. Our greatest asset as an organization is our team - and spending time around my colleagues is such a blessing. We spent our time going over the past 18-months, planning for next year, and reconnecting personally and professionally. Oh, and sharing a Pisco sour . . . or two.
Also, at our weekend retreat - Karen Falkenstein, HBI's longtime Director of Evaluation - was offered and accepted a promotion to the position of Director of Operations. This is such a great move for HBI and could not have happened to a more prepared person. Over the past two years, Karen has progressively taken a larger and larger role in the leadership of our organization She has really become our go-to operations expert. This promotion provides the recognition and boost that she deserves.
Later this week we will be posting an important blog providing key updates on our NRP train-the-trainer program. We will also share some exciting news - as we recently had another research manuscript accepted for publication. More to come on both fronts.
The HBI Blog is a rotating journal from our staff. Our Blog is a series of messages from the field, insights from our work, and lessons in service.
