Thanksgiving 2014

As we come to the end of another year on the Transforming Workers’ Comp blog, I wanted to take some time to express what I am thankful for this year.

However, it is also a sad time, as for the first time in my life, this holiday will pass without one parent present. As many of you may know by now, my father passed away in September, and my mother and I will be having a quiet holiday without him. In fact, this past Monday, we placed him in the niche, so it won’t be the same holiday ever again.

But here is what I am thankful for:

I am thankful for the invitation extended to me by Carlos Arceo, President of the Mexican Council for the Medical Tourism Industry to attend and speak at this year’s summit in Reynosa, Mexico. Carlos was a wonderful host and organized a great conference. I hope that an invitation will be extended for next year’s summit as well.

I am also thankful for finally meeting my fellow FAU alum, Maria Todd, CEO at Mercury Advisory Group, who is encouraging me to continue my efforts to bring medical tourism to the workers’ comp industry, and who introduced me to people she knew attending the summit this year.

I am also thankful for meeting several people in the medical tourism industry that I have been connected with on Linkedin, but never met. My thanks goes to Julie Conner, Maria Laura Garcia Mesa, Elizabeth Ziemba, and of course, Carlos Arceo. I am also thankful for meeting those who I met for the first time from the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Colombia.

I am thankful for the interest my idea is finally getting, and hope that 2015 will see the realization of my idea.

And finally, I am thankful for the assistance and support of Dr. Jamie Granger, of the Business Communication department at the FAU College of Business. Dr. Granger was my professor for the course, and gave me his time and advice on how to give my presentation.

Thank you for continuing to read my blog and I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
