An aspect of this year’s Super Bowl has encouraged me to relate my most recent observations about a valuable resource that can be utilized in this very competitive Electronic Medical Records (EMR) / Health IT Workforce jobs market.

With celebrations around our country for Earth Day just barely in our rear-view mirrors, many of you probably can share examples of how the care taking of our planet was discussed in your community organizations, in your office, or at your child’s school.
