Integrated Health President's Corner

Published in February Issue             

In last month’s IH President’s Corner, information was shared about the resignation of Pam Davis, the IH President-elect. The next steps were outlined, including an upcoming email to IH membership for a call for nominations. However, based on the eligible candidates and interest to run for this position, there will not be a call for nominees since only two potential candidates expressed an interest in running. Instead, there will be an email in the next several days to begin the voting process for one of the two nominees. Please be sure to vote – your voice and vote matters, and elections will not close for 21 days or until a quorum is met. Also, please be aware that per ASMBS policy, members are not to electioneer for either of
the candidates.

Congratulations to the IH Support Group committee for the success of the January webinar, “Keeping Patients Engaged in Bariatric Support Groups.” Thank you to the panelists
(Fran Brodeur, Paul Davidson, and John Archibeque) and moderator (Abigail Schroeder) for a job well done. The webinar was well-attended, and the feedback has been very positive. The next webinar will be an IH Town Hall webinar in March (date to be determined) with updates from the IH Executive Council.
