From Our Members:

Darcy AafedtDarcy Aafedt, CMRP, FAHRMM, Cost Improvement Senior Manager, Banner Health, Chandler, AZ

AHRMM Member since 2006

"Membership in AHRMM and my local chapter AHMMA are big reasons I am in healthcare supply chain. When I joined, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay in healthcare supply chain. I joined to see what I could learn, and confirm whether healthcare supply chain was the right fit for me. Today I can say “yes, it is.” Without us and the supplies we manage, there would be no patient care. Every day, we are challenged to question and seek better ways to conduct our business in a manner that is right for our patients and our organization."
