The Mid-Atlantic Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development (MASHSMD - "mash-med" for short) was formed in 2015 as the result of the merger of the Virginia and Maryland chapters of healthcare PR, marketing, communications and planning professionals. Then, in 2016, MASHSMD invited Pennsylvania to our society. We are also proud to be an official independent chapter affiliate of the Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD), the national organization for those responsible for strategy development and implementation in healthcare organizations.
