2021 ICAHN Rural Health Fellows Project Development
The inaugural class of the ICAHN Rural Health Fellowship began its eight-month leadership journey at a live, socially distanced event kick-off on October 28 in Springfield. The Rural Health Fellowship is designed for up-and-coming critical access hospital leaders. The experience covers four main pillars:
- Rural health
Fellows participate in online learning, a service project, and a book club with the goal of developing confident leaders who are equipped with the skills needed to lead in a rural community. Project development is one of the key aspects of the ICAHN Rural Health Fellowship. Acquiring the knowledge and expertise needed to successfully take an idea and grow it into a project that will benefit rural healthcare is an important skill that 2020-2021 ICAHN Fellows have gained.
It is with pleasure we share the projects from the inaugural class of the Rural Health Fellowship, who will graduate on May 5.
