HIMSS South Texas Chapter President’s Address

You must be willing to give up what you are, to become what you want to be. ~ Orrin Woodward 

Dear HIMSS South Texas Members,

I am grateful to serve as the HIMSS South Texas President as we lead into this unprecedented year of change. I know all of us have tackled adversity this year as 2020 has been a year for the history books. I personally want to thank all of our healthcare providers for their commitment to care during these past months.

Over the past three years of involvement in the chapter, I have gained an understanding and knowledge of the impact in our healthcare community. This year I am looking forward to expanding our chapter's reach into our extended communities, growing our educational events, and providing valuable knowledge to our providers, payers, and healthcare integrators. I am excited to innovate new ways for virtual events to keep our valuable networking and educational programming for you, our members.

In this time of change, we as a chapter are changing as well. Many of you have started to see the new rollout of our HIMSS South Texas brand and logo. We are excited to expand our reach and grow our healthcare community.

We have a very exciting year planned for y’all. To kick it off we would like to invite you to a virtual meet and greet with our Board on Thursday, September 24, 2020, from 4:30-5:30 pm CST. You can register for this event on the events page of our website.

We would love to hear from you directly and how the chapter can best support you. If you are interested in volunteering or joining a committee please email me at
