CM Department News
This week, I get the honor of joining Alyssa Zayas, Kim Braga, Mark Oliveira, Nate Boyer, Rob Clark and Preston Tziouvaras (I spelled that without looking it up, a first for me) to Chicago for the ASC Region 3 Healthcare competition. The team has been working tirelessly to prepare for the competition in a tradition that's customary to Sac State CM.
In case you didn't hear, another Sac State CM team, consisting of Alyssa, Nick Staykow, Javier Mederos and Neil Devlin won the Western Pacific Division of the DBIA competition. They're off in a few weeks to compete for the national championship.
Sac State CM is already a western powerhouse. Soon, we'll be a national powerhouse. That benefits all of us.
Wish both teams luck!

I teach people who will be building our country's infrastructure.
