CAHME is fortunate to benefit from the guidance of our Board of Directors who set the overall strategic direction for the organization and provide important oversight to all our activities.
At our most recent board meeting in May, CAHME welcomed three new board members who represent both the professional and academic stakeholders in CAHME’s mission. New board members are approved by CAHME’s Corporate Members.
Forest S. Kim recently concluded his role as program director and associate professor at University of the Incarnate Word Graduate Program in Healthcare Administration. In July, he will begin as director for the Baylor University Robbins MBA Healthcare program. Forest was a contributor to CAHME’s recent publication on benchmarking. He was nominated by AUPHA.
Todd A. Nelson is chief partnership officer for the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and formerly served as Vice President for Education at HFMA and as a hospital CFO. Todd was nominated for the board by HFMA.
The Board also appointed members to the CAHME Executive Committee:
- Chair: Cynthia Hahn, senior Vice President at ACHE
- Chair-Elect: Dolores Clement, professor of Health Administration at Virginia Commonwealth University
- Secretary/Treasurer: JoAnn Klinedinst, Vice President Professional Development at HIMSS
- Past-Chair: Steve Ullmann, department chair and professor of Health Management and Policy at the University of Miami
We are grateful for the selfless contributions of time and talent our board members make to support CAHME’s mission of advancing the quality of healthcare management education.
