ARDX CEO Angela D. Reddix spoke at the Women Who Mean Business summit in Richmond, Virginia. The annual conference brings together hundreds of business women and entrepreneurs from around the region. This year’s theme was “Are you Thriving or Just Surviving?” Angela was quoted in the Richmond Times Dispatch article, ‘An uphill battle for women in business.’"Fake it until you make it," said Angela Reddix, who started health care management consulting firm A. Reddix & Associates five years ago. Reddix said if you want people to view you as a business owner, you need to be confident enough to say you're starting a business. "You just have to start, and sometimes fear paralyzes people and they won't get started," she said.

The Healthcare Academy (HCA) volunteers and ARDX Interns traveled to the Oakmont Community Development Corporation. The HCA was fabulous! There 20 students ages 6-14 (mostly 6-9) and they all had a great time…and learned something! Some of the fun included a session on nutrition with photos of “healthy” and “not healthy” meals…exercises where teams relay raced while imitating animals...a segment on active listening along with game of “telephone” to demonstrate the importance of really listening…an exercise on peer pressure along with some examples of “real-life” experiences…and a bullying/brainstorming session in which the group identified some useful ways to overcome bullying situations. The team debriefed in the parking lot afterwards and Megan said “I believe all of the interns really feel like they gave back to the community today. We had a great group of students, and the coordinators of the program were very interactive and helpful. I will go on record and say this was one of the best HCAs we’ve had to date!”
