Dr. William C. Chiu

Recipient of the EAST GRADE Workshop Scholarship


I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to EAST Past President and Past Guidelines Section Chair Dr. Elliott Haut, EAST Executive Director Christine Eme, and all EAST donors.  In 2014, I was one of the recipients of the EAST GRADE Workshop Scholarship.

This educational workshop afforded me the knowledge and skills to actively participate in several EAST Practice Management Guidelines (PMG) projects, and I am in the process of leading a PMG development of my own.

(A traditional Japanese haiku is a 3-line poem with 17 syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. This poetic form captures a moment and creates a picture in the reader’s mind.  Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.)
