ASPR Vendor Resource Guide
Don’t forget to use the ASPR Vendor Resource Guide! The Vendor Resource Guide is an online directory designed to help you search for vendors that provide products and services you may need to assist you in your job. This “Virtual Exhibit Hall” can be searched by service category and provides you with a summary of the vendor’s service or product and the vendor’s contact information. Some of the vendors offer special discounts to ASPR members. Details regarding these member discounts are provided in the search results when available.
The Vendor Resource Guide is a paid advertising opportunity. The Guide is not intended to be a comprehensive listing or to imply ASPR endorsement of a particular vendor. If you work with vendors who provide you with excellent services that are not listed in the Guide, please consider emailing their contact information to Jennifer Metivier, Executive Director, at email@example.com.

AIR (Academic In-house Recruiters, a Chapter of ASPR) National Conference Recap
Lisa Anastos, Executive VP for Clinical Practice and Business Development at the University of Chicago Medical Center Presents to AIR
With her vibrant personality and in depth knowledge of academic settings , compensation models, and healthcare challenges, Ms. Anastos delivered an excellent, informative presentation at the AIR Educational Seminar in Los Angeles entitled "21st Century Financial Models". She shared statistics from various academic settings and reviewed the changes taking place in academic financial models due to the recent changes in health care models including integrative delivery systems, medical home models, pay for performance, ACO's, etc. One strong message she shared was clear. The perfect physicians to recruit moving forward are those who are open to change, are collaborative, are focused on prevention/wellness, willingly embrace IT, and are patient centered. At the conclusion of her presentation, Ms. Anastos expressed an interest in collaborating more with AIR and sharing information about our organization with her colleagues in the industry.
