President's Message: 

Diana Mason

An invitation to attend an event at the White House is always welcome. I'm pleased that we've two such invitations in the past six months.

In October of 2014, Anne Turner-Henson represented the Academy at the White House for a meeting on early childhood development. As then lead Co-Chair of the Child, Adolescent and Family Expert Panel, Anne was well-prepared to provide important perspectives on how to give children a better start in life. This work is consistent with the Academy's Strategic Goal on addressing the broad range of factors that affect the health of people. Indeed, she also sits on the Task Force, led by President-Elect Bobbie Berkowitz, that is charged with overseeing our work on this goal.

Then, on March 25th, Academy CEO Cheryl Sullivan represented the Academy and nursing at a White House launch of a new Health Care Action Learning and Payment Network to engage insurers, providers, employers, consumers and other key stakeholders in exploring ways to accelerate this movement to global, value-based payments. The invitation followed on the heels of a meeting that Cheryl and I had with Patrick Conway and other staff at CMMI, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to discuss the Academy's support of accelerating movement towards the nation adopting global payment models that could move us away from the fee-for-service model.

Both of these events align with our strategic plan and speak to the Academy's reputation as an organization that is mission-driven. We are not merely an honorific society. Rather, we are pursuing a mission of advancing health policy and practice through nursing knowledge. It seems that the Obama Administration and others recognize what the Academy has to offer.
