Building on the success of its first three classes, the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York is launching a fourth class of its successful Health Leadership Fellows program.
The Health Foundation is currently in the process of interviewing and selecting participants and the program will begin in September 2013.
The goal of the Health Leadership Fellows program is to expand a network of skilled leaders that will learn to lead collaboratively from both within and outside of their organizations and become advocates for improved health care delivery, particularly for the frail elderly and children from communities of poverty.
The 18-month program includes sessions on personal leadership, leading change, communicating as a leader and collaboration. 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. Each fellow will also receive executive coaching and access to the Fellows’ website and learning materials.
Ninety-nine Health Leadership Fellows, in three distinct cohorts, graduated from the original program that began in 2005 and ended in 2009. These fellows have made significant contributions throughout western and central New York by leading collaboratively to improve the health and well-being of children and elders.
As graduates of the Health Leadership Fellows program, they continue their collaborative work as members of the Fellows Action Network.
