Sindy Chiu- Graduate Student Scholarship Recipient 2016-2017

Sindy ChiuCongratulations to Sindy Chiu, the graduate student recipient of the UHIMSS 2016-2017 scholarship.

Sindy (Yin-Shun) Chiu, RN, BSN was born and raised in Hong Kong until high school completion, before she began her journey as an international student in Seattle, Boise, and then Salt Lake City. After managing to obtain her nursing degree in 2013 from Boise State University, she worked as a maternity registered nurse at Intermountain Riverton Hospital until her work permit expired last year. That was when she found herself interested in improving EHR interface to improve clinical workflow and using data to better serve our patients. She then started her graduate studies in nursing informatics at the University of Utah and served as a program assistant at HIMSS 16 Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.

We look forward to having Sindy join the Student Liaison Committee this year.  Her service and input will be a valuable addition.
