OHIMA 2017 Achievement Award Winners

The OHIMA 2017 Achievement Awards were presented during the General Session on Monday, March 20, 2017 at the OHIMA Annual Meeting & Trade Show.  Congratulations to our award winners:

Lauree E. Handlon, MS, RHIA, CCS, COC, FAHIMA

OHIMA's highest honor, the Distinguished Member Award, recognizes Lauree Handlon for demonstrating exceptional leadership & service throughout her career.

Lauree has served the HIM profession tirelessly.  She has been a star at her workplace and in her volunteer role with OHIMA – and yet she still finds the time to serve on boards, present and publish, and serve as a preceptor, mentor and adjunct faculty to future healthcare professionals.  It would be an understatement to say that Lauree "serves" - she goes above and beyond in every single endeavor, every single time - without fail. 

Congrats Lauree!


Kristin Nelson, MS, RHIA

The Ambassador to Education Award honors an outstanding clinical practice site supervisor, adjunct professor or other HIM professional who has contributed significantly to Ohio’s Health Information Management and Health Information Technology programs.  In 2017, we are thrilled to honor Kristin Nelson as the Ambassador to Education Award recipient.

Kristin is an exceptional at what she does.  She has a passion to educate.  Kristin has provided students with an excellent learning experience by sharing her HIM knowledge.  Her dedication to her students and the enthusiasm she brings contributes significantly to the success of students at Ohio State, University of Cincinnati, etc. 

Congrats Kristin!
