About the Leadership Series
The Leadership Series was created to bring to ACHE of Georgia members and guests the top national leaders in the field of healthcare to give us their insights into their careers, their organizations, and the decisions they made to get them to where they are today.

You’ll learn straight from the source how these top executives run their organizations and manage their success.

The format is one hour with 50 minutes of lecture and 10 minutes of Q&A. We are expecting to offer at least one session a month, and the schedule will depend on speaker availability. Our series qualifies for one hour of qualified continuing education credit with ACHE.
