Early in my career, a colleague suggested that I submit an abstract to the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM). I did, and was selected for a podium presentation! Since then, I’ve been a member of AcademyHealth and my involvement has grown and aided my career over the last 12 years. From conference planning committees and mentorship activities to presenting, to opportunities to serve as a reviewer of cutting edge research, AcademyHealth consistently provides avenues for me to engage in the health services research community while simultaneously advancing my career.

Over the years, through my membership in AcademyHealth, I’ve gained advice and feedback from a broad network of experts that has improved my research. I’ve connected with the best and brightest in the field. AcademyHealth offers opportunities to disseminate and promote my work to relevant audiences. I highly recommend AcademyHealth membership if you’re looking to advance in your career.
