Since Strong for Surgery launched almost four years ago, many of you have gotten to know our dedicated implementation coordinator, Wendy Klamp. In the first year, she helped build a public health campaign from scratch, recruit and train five pilot sites, and prove that surgeons and staff would join our efforts voluntarily and enthusiastically. She's spent countless hours helping hospitals and clinic staff map workflows, overcome obstacles, and successfully implement the program.
This month we bid a fond farewell to Wendy as she moves to Denver to be closer to family. She'll also be taking a job at the University of Colorado to develop a pre-surgery risk optimization program along the lines of Strong for Surgery. Wendy explains, "Working for CERTAIN has been a tremendous opportunity for me, in particular the opportunity to improve surgical outcomes for patients at a state and national level. I look forward to 300 days of sunshine and will continue being a Seahawks fan."
