Jan 9, 2017

Jan. 15 is the deadline for OHIO students to register if they wish to join the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine Office of Rural and Underserved Programs for a day of interactive workshops during an interprofessional leadership summit that will take place Friday, Jan. 27.

During the event, nationally recognized speaker Andrew Morris-Singer, M.D., and his team from Primary Care Progress will lead sessions at the Athens, Cleveland and Dublin campuses of the Heritage College.

"Dr. Morris-Singer is an articulate spokesperson and passionate advocate for relational leadership in any specialty,” said Randall Longenecker, M.D., family medicine professor and assistant dean for rural and underserved programs at the Heritage College. “He and the organization he leads, Primary Care Progress, however, are also looking to create the primary care workforce of the future, leading the next generation of primary care physicians in reforming our health care system and recovering joy, meaning, and effectiveness in practice.”

The sessions are aimed at strengthening participants’ skills in relational leadership. Campus-specific break-out sessions facilitated by students and faculty members also will be offered at each site.

The theme for the event, which is supported by multiple student organizations, is “Finding Your Voice as a Leader: Working in Interprofessional Teams.” For a complete schedule, to register or to watch a short video of Morris-Singer click here
