The goal of the Health Leadership Fellows program is to expand a network of skilled leaders. The 18-month program includes sessions on personal leadership, leading change, communicating as a leader, results-based leadership and collaboration. In addition to four retreats spanning 2-3 days each, fellows will meet monthly. Eligible applicants include professionals in decision-making positions of influence in health-related or safety-net organizations that serve older adults or children ages birth to five impacted by poverty in western and central New York. All expenses are paid by the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
