Building Lasting Connections: An Investment in Leadership


Our vision of improving health care for older adults and young children impacted by poverty depends on the work of advocates in the community. When leaders at local non-profits share a sense of purpose, they can work together to solve the region’s toughest health issues.

To build a network of skilled leaders who will take on these challenges collaboratively, the Foundation created the Health Leadership Fellows program.

One of our earliest and longest-running programs, the Health Leadership Fellows program has trained hundreds of non-profit professionals on leadership, communication and collaboration since it began in 2005.  Using what they’ve learned from expert faculty, residential sessions, leadership assessments and coaching sessions, our Health Leadership Fellows have used new information, relationships and ideas to make a difference in the health of young children and older adults across western and central New York.

This publication captures the story of the first 10 years of our Health Leadership Fellows program, including how it came to be, how it evolved over the years and where it is today.
