Vote for Karen Scott – Candidate for AHIMA Board of Directors!

Karen THIMA members are so fortunate that our own Karen Scott is a candidate for the AHIMA Board of Directors! We have the unique opportunity to support a THIMA member who can help shape the future of our professional association. Please help spread the word and encourage your colleagues to vote when the polls open on August 1.

In the meantime, you can post questions to Karen and other AHIMA Election Candidates in Engage.
