Letter from Our New IOMC Board of Governors Chair
WELCOME to our new Fellows and Board Members,
The next year is shaping up to be filled with outstanding opportunities, alliances and programs! Over our extensive history, the Institute of Medicine of Chicago’s members have contributed to the academic community, medical organizations, and public health. This has earned IOMC a highly regarded and respected place in the health care community. Our partnerships and collaborations have created opportunities where none have existed before, and we are continuing that tradition by engaging additional organizations, such as Midwest Business Group on Health and MATTER to conceptualize and help launch the first Wellbeing Trust Initiative in the Metropolitan Chicago area. IOMC is actively working with several entrepreneurs to help them with their entrée into the marketplace, as well as consult with our fellows to expand their work. We have been working with MATTER, the midwest’s premier health care technological start-up organization to define mutually beneficial shared projects.
1: To create exciting programs and opportunities for all of our Fellows, members, and affiliates.
2: To continue to keep IOMC relevant in a quick changing, highly charged health care environment.
3: To provide a platform by which all of our Fellows and members want to be actively involved and continually contribute their knowledge, experience and ideas to IOMC, and the community at large.
4: To assure clarity, inclusion and access by creating inroads for all fellows and members to interact.
5: To create an environment that assists our fellows and members in reaching their goals to improve the Metropolitan Chicago population social and health care interactions and outcomes.
In the present health care environment where instability has become the norm, IOMC will play a role to convene, coalesce and lead. Remember, your ideas, opinions and thoughts are at the cornerstone of our shared ideals to improve the lives of our communities.
SEE YOU AT EVENTS AND MEETINGS!
