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 older adults and children impacted by poverty. 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 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.

More than 200 Health Leadership Fellows, across six distinct cohorts, have graduated from the program. 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 older adults.

As graduates of the Health Leadership Fellows program, they continue their collaborative work as members of the Fellows Action Network.
