International College Graduate Receives Honors
Elizabeth Whitmer, a 1999, Summa Cum Laude Graduate of International College, has been honored with the annual Distinguished Service Award from the Florida Health Information Management Association.
During the Association’s annual state conference, held in Orlando this year, Whitmer was recognized for her role in strengthening the goals of the organization and reflecting the best among those serving in the profession.
Comprised of health information management professionals working in hospitals, clinics, insurance companies, and private medical practices throughout the state, the Association exists to provide industry support through facilitation of a variety of educational programs.
"This is a job I truly believe in so each day is rewarding, but to have my efforts recognized by the state in this way is especially rewarding," says Whitmer.
In addition to serving as one of The Association’s Board of Directors and President of the Southwest Region Health Information Management Association, Whitmer is a Supervisor of Health Information and Privacy Officer for The Heart Group, a cardiology practice based in Fort Myers.
