​ On Collaboration and Strategy   The AUPHA Board held its fall meeting in collaboration with the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) meeting in Boston.

Taylor was a very thoughtful, active member of the board of health. He asked smart questions and took his time on the tough issues to determine what was best for the health ...

Sadly, many are still recovering from the most ...
