Welcome to AACVPR Affirmations!
With the first quarter of 2021 now under our belt, here are a couple of member highlights so far this year:
- Please raise your glasses in honor of Bonnie Anderson, MS, RCEP, MAACVPR, who retired from Vernon Memorial Hospital after 34 years of service! Bonnie has dedicated her life to promoting cardiac rehab through her own work as well as through her involvement in the Wisconsin Society (WISCPHR) and AACVPR. A beloved leader, mentor, and friend, she is already missed. AACVPR thanks you for your contributions and wishes you a happy and healthy retirement!
- The folks at Baptist Health in Montgomery, AL, reached an important milestone just this month! While 2020 is behind us, COVID-19 certainly is not; and AACVPR members continue to adapt in light of the changing healthcare landscape. That being said, congratulations are in order for the Baptist Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, which recently took steps to accommodate patients who otherwise could not benefit from its services. The practice, up and running since 1979, saw its very first virtual CR patient in March!
If you missed the deadline for this round of affirmations, send them anyway! We’ll report the next round of accomplishments, achievements, milestones, and more in the June issue. Submit yours to the Google Form here.
Until next time…Cheers!
