Congratulations to these ACU staff!

Anna Gard, FNP, was awarded a scholarship to attend the George Washington School of Public Health “Health Information Technology for Clinician Leaders” graduate certificate program. She will begin this yearlong program in May to support her work in facilitating the implementation of health information technology in public health care organizations to improve population health outcomes.

Lois Wessel, CFNP,  co-authored an article published in the Journal of Family Practice on simple strategies clinicians can employ to help patients with limited health literacy grasp—and retain—vital information about chronic conditions, medications, and more.
