IndyHub Forward by Tyler Fosnaugh

It’s easy to feel down in the dumps these days about the state of nation. Polarizing politicians, nuclear adversaries, and violent protests do little to provide the average American with confidence. It wasn’t until I attended the IndyHub Forward event earlier this summer, that I was reminded of all the good our government can bring [...]

The conversation would be cordial until the consultant would wax poetic about how his old state did something, [...]

More than a cliché by Nick Petrone

Always a Moderator, never a Presenter by Faye Makishima

As I reflect on the conclusion of the Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference (MESC) for 2017, it has been another success.  Although our staff submitted abstracts for the conference, we were not selected to present our material.  However, our work was still acknowledged through a session that I was asked to moderate. Every year, I volunteer [...]
