2014 Charity Event (December 3, 2014)

RJ_Pediatric_ImageOn December 3, 2014, Missouri Healthcare Executives Group hosted the Inaugural Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital Charity Event at Kodner Gallery in Ladue, MO.  Local artist Bryan Haynes was featured at the event.  Bryan, through the Kodner Gallery Art Therapy Program at Ranken Jordan, completed a mural with the patients and staff, that it is currently hanging in the hospital as part of their permanent collection. 

The event successfully raised $1850 which will be donated to Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital. We hope to see you at our 2015 Charity Event!

Apply for a Tuition Waiver

To reduce the ACHE educational programming barriers for ACHE members experiencing economic hardship, ACHE has established the Tuition Waiver Assistance Program.

ACHE makes a limited number of tuition waivers available to Members and Fellows whose organizations lack the resources to fund their tuition for education programs. Members and Fellows in career transition are also encouraged to apply. Tuition waivers are based on financial need and are available for the following ACHE education programs:

  • Congress on Healthcare Leadership
  • Cluster Seminars
  • Self-Study Programs
  • Online Education Programs
  • ACHE Board of Governors Exam Review Course

All requests are due no less than eight weeks before the program date, with the exception of ACHE self-study courses—see quarterly application deadlines on the FAQ page of the tuition waiver application. Incomplete applications and applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Recipients will be notified of the waiver review panel's decision not less than six weeks before the program date. For ACHE self-study courses, applicants will be notified three weeks after the quarterly application deadline.

If you have questions about the program, please contact Teri Somrak, associate director, Division of Professional Development, at (312) 424-9354 or For more information, visit

You can also contact Janet Weckenborg, ACHE Regent for additional information for support.
