– STEVE FORBES, Head Coach of Men’s Basketball, East Tennessee State University
Steve Forbes became the 16th head coach in ETSU’s 95-year history on March 30, 2015.

In all, the Bucs finished the 2015-16 season with 24 wins – which marks the program’s third highest win total in the modern era. During the 2016-2017 season, the Bucs powered ahead and continued with even more success as they finished the season with a record of 27-8, a SoCon Championship, and a visit to the NCAA Tournament.Prior to ETSU, Forbes served two seasons as an assistant coach at Wichita State. He came to Wichita State from Northwest Florida State, where he coached the Raiders to a 61-6 record during his two-year tenure in Niceville, FL. Forbes’ Division I experience includes five years at Tennessee, two seasons at Texas A&M, one year at Illinois State, three years at Louisiana Tech and one year at Idaho.A native of Lone Tree, IA, Forbes graduated from Southern Arkansas University with a degree in secondary education in 1988. A former baseball student-athlete for the Muleriders, Forbes spent one year at his alma mater as the sports information director before embarking on a coaching career.Forbes and his wife Johnetta have three children, Elizabeth (25), Christopher (19) and Johnathon (11).

1:00PM – 2:00PMNow What? Steps for Enrolling in Provider Networks and Billing Medical Claims
– JEFF ROCHON, PharmD, Chief Executive Officer, Washington State Pharmacy Association
Jeff Rochon received his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Washington. Since entering the pharmacy profession, Dr. Rochon has devoted his career to finding innovative ways to enhance the practice of pharmacy in his own work and for the profession. Over his career, Jeff has worked in hospital, clinic and community pharmacy settings.After developing a community residency program, Dr. Rochon was hired as a pharmacist and pharmaceutical care director at Kelley-Ross Pharmacy in Seattle. In 2000, he started an anticoagulation clinic at the Polyclinic. He later joined the Washington State Pharmacy Association (WSPA) as the director of professional development. In 2008, Dr. Rochon was hired as the Chief Executive Officer of the WSPA. Advocating for patient access to care provided by pharmacists is one of his top priorities. To achieve this end, he has worked with lawmakers, other healthcare provider organizations, patient advocacy groups, and insurers in Washington State.  Dr. Rochon has been involved in the efforts to pass state legislation, including SB 5557, which allowed pharmacists to enroll in health plan preferred provider networks and bill for services covered within the medical benefit. This law, passed in 2015, is leading to improved patient access to the expertise of pharmacists in hospitals, clinics, community pharmacies and nursing homes. Over the past few years, he and his colleagues have worked closely with health plans to facilitate the successful implementation of SB 5557, including integrated provider network enrollment processes, and mechanisms for appropriate coding and billing medical claims with necessary documentation and compliance.
