At Medtrade Spring last month, the American Association for Homecare announced that Kay Cox will replace Tom Connaughton as president of AAHomecare, effective June 1.

Cox, who has more than 20 years of experience in the health care industry, most recently worked as vice president of the Washington office and political action committee of Beverly Enterprises, a $2.4 billion company that operates skilled nursing facilities nationwide.

More information about Cox, and a message from Cox herself, appear in HomeCare's Medtrade Report, beginning on page 30.
