August 2019 Message from the Director
As NICA continues to grow, I am frequently asked about potential opportunities to get involved with the organization. The industry’s need and enthusiasm for what NICA can offer infusion providers and their patients has been overwhelming and I am excited to share some new ways that infusion professionals such as yourselves can get involved with NICA!
Get Involved with Us
In the coming weeks, we will launch three new programs for infusion professionals who have a passion for professional growth! Below are brief descriptions of each opportunity that will be available. A separate email will be sent out shortly once applications are open.
As NICA expands its presence in the infusion industry, we need leaders to help guide and advise on our efforts. There will be four subcommittees that will need subject matter experts: Clinical Standards, Advocacy, Education & Resources, and Partnerships & Development.
NICA’s InfusionConfusion™ Forum is in need of moderators who can reliably answer and engage with questions that are posted within the forum, as well as vet questions that frequently arise when operating an infusion center.
NICA’s growing network of advocates exist so that when a patient access issue arises, advocates within the state(s) impacted will contact pertinent representatives through NICA’s advocacy portal to ensure the voices of patients and health care providers are heard.
If you are interested in learning more about participating in one of these programs, please email Chris Counts (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Welcome New Provider Members
If you own or operate an infusion center, there’s one very easy way to get involved with NICA: Provider Membership! I would like to take a moment to welcome and thank the infusion centers that joined us in Q2 and chose to support NICA through provider membership.
See the full list of NICA Provider Members here or learn more about how to support NICA through membership. These are some incredible infusion providers who care deeply about protecting their patients’ access to high-quality infusion care!
Thank you for your continued support and partnership with NICA. We are constantly reminded of our great fortune to be in the ranks of passionate patient advocates, healthcare providers, and industry leaders such as yourselves.
Thank you for your time,
Brian Nyquist, MPH
Executive Director, National Infusion Center Association
