Congratulations to Clinical Associate Professor Sue Green who has been chosen as a Fellow in the fifth cohort of the Health Leadership Fellows Program of the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York.
The Health Foundation for Western and Central New York has named its 2014 class of Health Leadership Fellows, recognizing 42 diverse, highly skilled, leaders from health-related and safety net organizations across western and central New York.
“Working collaboratively through the Health Leadership Fellows Program, these promising leaders can share best practices and develop new and innovative ways to improve the health of the people in our communities, particularly the frail elderly and children living in communities of poverty,” Health Foundation President Ann F. Monroe said.
Designed to improve critical skills of leaders in health and human service organizations, the 18-month program offers individual leadership development, academic and team support, executive coaching, opportunities to increase a network of leaders and an opportunity for collective leadership and change. In addition to four to five retreats spanning two to three days each, fellows will meet monthly and develop a collaborative inter-organizational project in small teams.
Members of the 2014 class join 136 other Health Leadership Fellows who have participated in the program since it began in 2005.
The Fellows were selected through an application process by a selection committee comprised of Health Foundation board members and other local professionals in leadership and health care. Selection criteria include leadership ability, the support of the nominee’s organization and the potential benefit of the program to the applicant’s organization and community.
As graduates of the Health Leadership Fellows program, they continue their collaborative work as members of the Fellows Action Network.
