Washington, D. C. – April 25, 2018 – The American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) is proud to recognize the New York Chapter of ACHCA as a 2018 recipient of the ACHCA Chapter Achievement Award. The award was presented during the awards ceremony at ACHCA’s Annual Convocation and Exposition in Orlando Florida on April 24, 2018.
The prestigious Chapter Achievement Award recognizes a project developed by an ACHCA Chapter to address a member need or chapter objective. Each year, the New York Chapter works to raise funds for the Sister Joan Cassidy and Michael Cuseo Ethnic Diversity Fund. The ACHCA New York Chapter designed this fund to increase the involvement and participation of culturally diverse groups across the nation in ACHCA – and to assist students. ACHCA was pleased to present them with the Chapter Achievement Award in recognition of their accomplishment of hosting fund raising events to maintain an ongoing scholarship dedicated to increasing diversity within geriatrics and long-term care.
