“Gina has spent her entire career in healthcare, and I’ve always respected her industry experience,” said Fagnani, co-owner of Lynn Medical. “I am also proud to pass the gavel to our fourth female board chair.”
Concordance CEO Lisa Hohman currently is chair of HIDA’s research and education affiliate, the HIDA Educational Foundation (HEF). Cindy Juhas, now Chief Strategy Officer for CMS, served as HIDA’s first female chair in 2001.
HEF Treasurer Mike Abney of Quidel, added his congratulations: “This leadership succession is not surprising given their remarkable accomplishments. It is an important moment for growth and inclusion in our industry, one each member company should be proud to be a part of.”
