Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
— Hellen Keller

Earlier this year, Matthew Marek, Executive Director of Good Neighbor, and Rich Shelton, Director of Strategic Engagement, presented at the Virginia Association of Health Plans (VAHP) annual conference thanks to the VAHP’s generous invitation.

The presentation focused on innovation within the space of intellectual/developmental disabilities and behavioral health. Matthew and Rich spoke about the unique ways in which Good Neighbor provides care and the next frontier in the industry as technology continues to be a welcomed disruption. 

They also shared our commitment to creating access to data-driven insights, implementing new technologies that advance the quality of care, and designing services that meet people where they are.

We were honored to have the opportunity to share our story at the conference.

Today, we're excited to join the Virginia Association of Health Plans as an affiliate member and are eager to collaborate with the association and the many forward-thinking organizations involved.

Helen Keller said, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” In order to achieve true innovation and progress we have to do it together. Incredible things can happen when we challenge the status quo to put people first, and this partnership is another step in that direction.

A better resolution

Do you have any New Year's resolutions this year? 

Have you ever stopped to think about why?

We've all been there - the guilt and disappointment of another failed New Year's resolution. So what's the point?

Well, what if there was a better resolution? One that never fails to give back.

In the video above, Matthew Marek, executive director and founder of Good Neighbor, offers an interesting take on what might be the best resolution for us all this year.
