  "ACHE's publications, local chapters, Congress on Healthcare Leadership, and other services create an interface between practicing healthcare managers and faculty members. For example, the Journal of Healthcare Management is a unique blend of academic and practitioner perspectives on real-world challenges, making it a great tool for faculty and students. These services show that ACHE values lifelong learning and continuing relationships with academic programs."
