“I am excited to work with Jennifer and look forward to this next chapter for the Foundation,” she said. “The work of the Foundation serves all of our healthcare systems well and there is much more to come!”
Miff was enthusiastic about her new challenge.
“I am thrilled to be leading the DFWHC Foundation,” she said. “We have a tremendous opportunity to deliver insights that improve patient engagement, clinician experience and community collaboration to drive improved outcomes and a lower cost of care.”
Miff will assume her new role in late October.
