OkHIMA Student Ambassador Program

The OkHIMA Student Ambassador program is an elite opportunity for students enrolled in an CAHIIM program to be selected to be involved with the OkHIMA Convention Committee to plan and execute the annual OkHIMA Convention and Vendor Show.  Since its inception in 2010, the Ambassador Program has selected over 50 Ambassadors who have participated in the program, most of whom continue their volunteer experience by joining the OkHIMA board once they have graduated.
