HBA Chicago is pleased to announce that our August volunteer of the month is Julie Ciric. When asked to share her experience as an HBA Chicago volunteer, she told us: "I was absolutely stunned and honored to be recognized as the August volunteer of the month for the HBA Chicago Chapter. When I joined HBA three years ago, I had no idea it would provide me more opportunities to develop personally and professionally than I could have hoped for. The women and men in this organization are the warmest, most welcoming and supportive group of people I have ever met, and I look forward to every opportunity to give back to the HBA in any way that I can. I’ve had somewhat of a rough couple of years medically, and the HBA allowed me to forget about my problems and look for ways to make a positive impact in the lives of others. From volunteering on the HBA Chicago board of directors to programming to mentoring, I am extremely proud to be on this journey with the HBA and I look forward to many more years of doing my part to further the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare. Again, thank you so much for this honor. It means more to me than words can express."
