What is MoHIMA doing to support the AHIMA Foundation?

Missouri is committed to helping the AHIMA Foundation attain its goals.

We have been very busy the last couple of years coming up with new campaigns for supporting the Foundation.

In 2005, we began the Shooting Star program, where a donation is made to the Foundation in the name of those individuals who have supported MoHIMA
in our endeavors.

Each year, MoHIMA participates in the AHIMA Not-So-Silent Auction and at our state meeting we have a silent auction AHIMA Foundation fundraiser and Foundation donation booth.
