Kit Welchin to Serve as Keynote Speaker at AHRA 2017 Spring Conference

Sudbury, MA – AHRA: The Association for Medical Imaging Management is proud to announce Kit Welchin will serve as the keynote speaker for the 2017 Spring Conference in Savannah, GA. Welchin’s topic, Chaos and Change Management: Leading through Adversity will provide participants the tools to effectively manage change and the stress that comes along with it.

“As medical imaging leaders are dealing with the constantly evolving healthcare landscape, it can be overwhelming to stay on top of and make sense of it all,” said Tricia Trammell, Spring Conference Design Chair.  “Kit’s presentation will be extremely valuable for our members and other conference attendees.”

Welchlin has delivered over 600 speeches and seminars on stress management to public and private organizations, helping employees to manage stress and increase productivity.

“With shrinking budgets, and the call to do more with less, it is critical to know how to stay calm and rational, even in a crisis,” said Welchin. “Personally and professionally we need skills to face change and benefit from it, rather than be a victim of it.”

Often described as “high energy” and “entertaining,” Welchin weaves his unique sense of humor and practical stories and strategies into his keynote presentations, whether he’s speaking about how to improve customer service, stress management in the workplace, intergenerational communication or how to handle difficult customers.

AHRA’s Spring Conference takes place March 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency Savannah.  Registration includes access to industry experts, an exhibit hall, opportunities for peer-to-peer connections, and CE credit. Conference details, as well as, individual and group registration are available at
