AHIMA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris encourages attendees to “get ready for two days of exciting learning, networking, and opportunities to advance your career and your organization. The summit will challenge you to think innovatively as you return to your workplace to develop and refine processes to make a difference in your organization,” says Wiggs Harris.
