What do you love about CPD?

I love the fact that through CPD - I am not only improving myself through constant learning but also I'm playing a part in educating physicians and other clinicians in the journey toward improving patient outcomes and patient safety - which will help make my institution a lot stronger.

If you had unlimited time and resources, what CPD topic would you do research on?

The role that biases may have in affecting Quality Improvement initiatives that are done by multiple institutions.

What is your favorite holiday and why?

My favorite holiday is Christmas Eve. I grew up in the Philippines celebrating Noche Buena, which is a traditional midnight feast and it always brings back fond memories. It is a big, open house, celebration with family, friends and neighbors dropping in to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! 2

Heather Clemons, MS, MBA, ATC, CHCP
Lead CME Associate
Sharp HealthCare

SACME member since 2016



What do you love about CPD?

When you educate one patient, you impact one patient. When you educate one physician (or other health care provider) you impact innumerable patients. Education is such a powerful way to "pay it forward" to make things better for everyone.

If you had unlimited time and resources, what CPD topic would you do research on?

Diversity and inclusion. Bias and stigma impact everything, whether overtly or covertly and I think we all could do a better job of recognizing our personal challenges and how that hinders us from being our best selves for others.

If you could choose the SACME Annual Meeting location (and it could be anywhere), where would you choose?

Porto, Portugal - a hidden gem of Europe. If you've never been you should definitely go.

What is your favorite holiday and why?

Halloween - my wife and I host a party every year. It's all about the decorations and the costumes. Sometimes it's fun to be someone or something else for a time and have fun while doing it. I also have a huge sweet tooth and what other holiday lets you go around and collect candy and chocolate.

What do you love about CPD?

I find the linkages between culture and context within the clinical knowledge translation process very fascinating.

If you had unlimited time and resources, what CPD topic would you do research on?

The utilization of CPD as a critical component of a feedback loop in the development of local practice guidelines in the developing world.

If you could choose the SACME Annual Meeting location (and it could be anywhere), where would you choose?

The country of Belize

What is your favorite holiday and why?

A tie between Memorial Day and Labor Day because those are the two days a year I can truly sleep in and relax.
