In Memoriam

We’re profoundly saddened by the passing of Shirley Eichenwald Maki on April 10, 2019. In her roles at the College and across the HIM profession, she blazed a path that will be followed for years to come. She was a tireless educator, a passionate advocate, a trusted mentor and a dear, dear friend to so many. We will miss her.
