At our 2018 Convention, we will pause to celebrate HPAE’s bold leadership team: Ann Twomey, Bernie Gerard and Barbara Rosen. Nearly 13,000 members strong, the Health Professionals & Allied Employees have long been the lone voice standing up against for-profit corporations and their attacks on the rights of healthcare workers, patients and the communities we serve.
