Suellen Galbraith

Don’t know how many of you knew Suellen Galbraith, but for those who did it is with deep sadness that I share news of her passing on Saturday.  She worked at ANCOR for many years and presented at quite a few of our conferences.  Her knowledge of Medicaid surpassed all, as did her passion for her work  and her advocacy on behalf of persons with disabilities (and the providers of those services).
