Brentwood, TN (April 5, 2018)  Heather J.

As Chairman-Elect, Rohan will serve the first part of a three-year term in ACHE’s consecutive chairmanship offices: Chairman-Elect, Chairman and Immediate Past Chairman. 

Board certified in healthcare management as an ACHE Fellow, Rohan has served on the ACHE Board of Governors since 2015. She also served as the ACHE Regent for Florida—Eastern from 2011 to 2012.
