New Program Advisory Committee Members

We are proud to announce that we have added two new members of the Health Administration Advisory Committee at SJC! Jon Abeles (above left) and Mattew Kirk (above right) will each serve a three year term. Matthew is currently a student in the BSRSA program online, while working at Maine Medical Center. In this capacity, he will bring expertise to the committee from the student perspective, as well as from the radiologic science administration context. Jon is the Senior Vice President of Talent Management, Diversity with Catholic Healthcare Partners (CHP). He has been in this role since 2005. He holds a doctorate degree in education and has been instrumental in implementing human resources and learning/development strategies within CHP. Jon brings his experience and expertise in developing health care leaders to the committee, as well as the Catholic health care context.

We are very pleased to have both of these two individuals working with the committee!

3rd Annual Health Administration Symposium

The 3rd annual Health Administration Symposium held at Saint Joseph's College of Maine was a tremendous success!

44 individuals attended the symposium, with 11 presenters. The topics were relevant and engaging, and attendees participated with gusto!

Here are a few comments from attendees:

"I wish I had known about these symposia before. I will be back next year."

"I feel that members in attendance were knowledeable and feel that the questions raised by them during the sessions were relevant and insightful."

"This presenter was a masterful communicator with a great sense of humor! I really enjoyed
how he related every one of his slides to real life scenarios. He brings his topic to life by providing relevant examples that we can relate to! I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation!"


Next year's symposium promises to be equally relevant and engaging!!! It will be held July 25th through 29th, 2011 on the SJC compus!
