“As my role in the College of Health Professions at Bellarmine continues to grow in a leadership capacity, I am increasingly interested in expanding my knowledge of the healthcare sector. This fellowship provides a unique opportunity to learn valuable information as well as make local connections I would not otherwise have access to. My goals for the program are to increase my knowledge of the business sector of healthcare, improve my knowledge of the complexities of the healthcare system, continue to develop as a leader, and to make connections with other local leaders in the healthcare field.”
