Farewell to Chris Barr

We had some news from Blue Cross last week and have learned that Chris Barr is no longer going to be working with NMC.  A disappointment for us, but a promotion opportunity for Chris within Blue Cross, so great news for him!

We will be meeting with his replacement soon and sharing their information with all of you.
