The final HMMS-NJ meeting of 2017 was held on December 13 and was well attended. The topic of the evening was “Bridging the Gap: How Supply Chain Can Support Clinical Operations and Workflow.” Attendees generously contributed toys for the annual “Toys for Tots” drive, and chapter leaders wish to thank the two Marines in attendance who represented the organization and took the toys to be distributed.

At the 2018 Annual Planning Meeting, chapter leaders chose many programs and dates for the 2018 member events. The first seminar of the year will be held on Wednesday, February 7. Visit the chapter website for more details.
