Parinda Khatri, Cherokee Health Systems

"It has been over a decade since [my first] meeting, and I have not missed a single CFHA conference since.  People ask me why I am part of CFHA and I tell them this: I am a better clinician because of CFHA.  I am a better teacher because of CFHA. I am a better administrator because of CFHA. I have lifelong friends because of CFHA."

Larry Mauksch, University of Washington

“CFHA has been a professional "home" for me for over two decades. Our meetings are a time when I have recurrently bathed myself in the relationships and ideas that support my career goals and activities. CFHA is the place where I can have these ideas nourished and enriched..."

Lauren DeCaporale-Ryan, University of Rochester Medical Center

"The organization unites clinicians from multiple professions who share a vision for the future of healthcare, serving as a forum for continued dialogue and creativity about how to advance healthcare in a cost-efficient manner."

Bill Gunn, Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency

“CFHA has had a profound influence on the field and on my professional identity. It is based on a mission and an ideal future of health care, not on the special interests of a guild... CFHA has been and continues to be my true professional home.”
