2023 CHAASE Banquet Recap & Scholarship Recipients

Every year, outstanding students, preceptors, and friends of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Health Care Administration (HCAD) Program are recognized at the annual Spring Banquet, hosted by the UW-Eau Claire Center for Health Care Administration and Aging Services Excellence (CHAASE). CHAASE is a unique partnership that combines the energy of academia with provider organizations and professional associations. CHAASE serves as a bridge between academics and practitioners in the senior care continuum. This is accomplished by fostering applied research, providing supplemental activities and nurturing relationships between our educational programs, health and aging services providers, and professional associations across the country. CHAASE supports the UW-Eau Claire HCAD program, which prepares students seeking to make a positive difference in the lives of others for leadership positions in health care.

WHCA/WiCAL is a proud sponsor of the CHAASE program and provided $10,000 in scholarships to students in the HCAD program, which were awarded during the 2023 CHAASE Banquet. This year, the following students were recipients of the WHCA/WiCAL sponsored scholarships: Jamie Challes, Matthew Donovan, Olivia Fladhammer, Kami Krumenauer, Emily Martel, Karla Gomez, and Carissa Prestholdt.


WHCA/WiCAL is able to continue its tradition of supporting the CHAASE program & HCAD students via the George F. MacKenzie scholarship fund. We hope to see you all on the links on July 17, for a day of golf and fundraising, so we may continue to support the future of long term care. Registration and details for the MacKenzie Classic (formerly known as the Care Classic) will be coming next week! Watch your email for details on the MacKenzie Classic!
