AHIMA NAMES DR. WYLECIA WIGGS HARRIS NEW CEO
On behalf of the AHIMA Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to announce that Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, has been selected as AHIMA’s chief executive officer, effective February 5, 2018.
Dr. Harris has extensive experience leading and transforming associations. She comes to AHIMA after serving as CEO of the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) and the League of Women Voters Education Fund, where she was responsible for revitalizing the national organization by developing and translating the organization’s strategic vision into operational solutions. She has held senior executive positions at the American Nurses Association, Sister to Sister Foundation, and the American Heart Association.
We’re thrilled to have Dr. Harris join AHIMA leadership, staff, and volunteers, as we continue to advocate for our members and best practices in health information management at a time when our profession and the healthcare industry are experiencing rapid change. We look forward to working together for the continued success and advancement of the HIM profession and AHIMA.
Please join me and the Board in welcoming Dr. Harris to the AHIMA family.
