It is time to provide your voice on California Health policy

Over the last few pandemic years, the general public and healthcare leaders have realized the importance of Federal and State policy. I write to you with 15 years of healthcare experience, including clinical roles, operational leadership, organizational strategy, and public policy.

July 14th, 2022 5:30pm - 7pm

Sign up for the 2022 Summer Mentor Program

The Mentor Program has two program offerings- Formal and Informal Program. As the Chair of the Mentor Program, I am excited to share that we had a successful 3- month Spring Formal Mentor Program.

With a cohort of 28 mentors/mentees, ranging from early careerists to senior executives, the mentor/mentee pair successfully completed the program requirements. In parallel to running the Formal Mentor Program, the team also hosted the Informal program, onboarded new mentors and mentees, and prepared for the upcoming 2022 Summer Mentorship Conference on July 27th at 5:30 pm.

Tristan Moore

School: California Northstate University's (CNSU) college of graduate studies class of 2022
Future Plans:
Progressing in the final year of his study, Tristan strives to utilize CNSU's Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree to affect material change within the U.S. healthcare system. Currently operating as a Project Engineer for Kaiser Permanente, Tristan's post-graduate ambitions entail joining an Administrative Fellowship to further his development as a healthcare leader. During his study, Tristan was fortunate to join ACHE - CAHL - HEN as a student council member in 2021.
What I enjoyed the most about CAHL:

Being a part of this team divulged meaningful interactions with healthcare leaders and built upon the foundation of education that CNSU provided resulting in a well-rounded educational experience.

Warm welcome to new CAHL members
