The Silver Trailblazer Award recognizes HFMA's accomplishments in transforming the organization’s workforce development initiatives—specifically the reinvention and re-launch of HFMA's organizational eLearning solution, e2 Learning.

"“We are honored to have been chosen as the Silver Trailblazer Award winner," said Diane Simmons, HFMA's Vice President of Education and Certification.
