Dear HFMA Region 2 Friends & Colleagues,

We have been following closely the heart wrenching pictures and reports regarding the extensive damage caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria to our HFMA friends and colleagues in Puerto Rico, a member of Region 2.  The effects of these storms will be felt for years and their impacts on the communities, first responders, healthcare leaders, and professionals will likely last a lifetime.  In times like these, community matters.  Our commitment to the communities we help and serve is our primary focus.  Because of our strong desire to do something, we have set up a website to raise funds for our fellow HFMA members and their loved ones in Puerto Rico during their time of need.
