[NOVEMBER 2018] Nominate your peers for recognition!

ACHCA NY Chapter is soliciting nominations for the following award recognitions:
The Ralph Barron Award – Our Past President and Region II Governor, the late Ralph J. Barron, Jr., felt that education and professional growth of the long-term care administrator were very important. In his memory, the New York Chapter has created the Ralph J. Barron, Jr. Scholarship Fund. The fund has a singular objective: to help underwrite the cost of education of new members to our profession and college chapter. Each year, the New York Chapter will award $1,000 in scholarship grants.
For the purposes of this fund, a scholarship means a financial award to help a student of a bona fide academic institution continue (proactive) his/her studies in the field of health care administration. A grant means a financial award to an individual to underwrite the cost of furthering his/her knowledge in the profession of health care administration. This distinction is made to allow for funding of knowledge enhancing projects that are not part of traditional academic programs, e.g. seminars, conferences, research activities, etc.
