Fall holds a special place in my heart at Accessia Health as it marks my 10-year work anniversary with this incredible organization. Over the past decade, I've been privileged to serve individuals I consider real-life superheroes. They face challenges most can only imagine, yet their hope and resilience inspire us all.

Each year, we shift to meet healthcare needs created by an ever-changing landscape. It's the incredible individuals we serve that drive our unwavering commitment to our mission – providing a financial safety net and assistance to patients and families living with chronic medical conditions. If you haven’t already, I invite you to read our 2022 Impact Report to see how Accessia Health has worked to change the lives of those we serve.

As part of our commitment to continuous learning, we created our Amplify Your Voice, Control Your Care webinar series. Next month, we will cover the important topic of caregiving. Caregivers are vital to our communities, but the responsibility does not come without its challenges. We hope that you will join us to learn how to manage the practical and emotional aspects of caring for a loved one.

Lastly, we're thrilled to introduce our new team members and warmly welcome back returning staff who have been integral to our organization's mission. In addition, we welcome our Fall interns from Virginia Commonwealth University. For several years, Accessia Health has welcomed undergraduate seniors from several VCU departments to join our team to learn and assist in the promotion, coordination, and implementation of health initiatives. As a proud VCU alumni, I proudly welcome our future healthcare leaders. 

Thank you for being a valued part of our community. I look forward to sharing the journey ahead with you.

With Gratitude,



Join us for an informative discussion that will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the impact of caring for someone with a chronic illness.

Our expert speakers will equip you with practical tips and emotional tools that can help manage the challenges associated with caring for a loved one. You’ll also be connected to resources, support networks, and programs available to you. We’ll highlight the importance of caregiving within our communities and how it can make a positive difference in people’s lives.
