< prev  |  next >

The Health Foundation for Western and Central New York is pleased to announce that Syracuse resident Kara Williams, program officer, has been selected as a 2014 Terrance Keenan Institute for Emerging Leaders in Health Philanthropy fellow.  She is one of 17 nationwide to be named to this cohort.

The Terrance Keenan Institute was created to nurture the next generation of health grantmaking leaders and further their professional development. The program fosters relationships among the fellows; connects them with established figures in the field; and reflects key themes from Terrance Keenan's work and writings such as leadership, innovation, taking risks and the 07/16/2014creative deployment of resources available to grantmakers.

Terrance Keenan Institute fellows will spend two days in October with seasoned leaders from the field of health philanthropy, many of whom are past recipients of GIH’s Terrance Keenan Leadership Award in Health Philanthropy. The program’s emphasis will be on leadership development, mentoring and building collegial connections that can endure throughout the fellows’ careers.

Kara was a fellow of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's 2009 Ladder to Leadership: Developing the Next Generation of Community Health Leaders program and is a member of the Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health. She was honored with the San Diego County Public Health Champion Award in 2006.

Kara holds a bachelor's degree in English from Vassar College and a Master of Public Health degree from San Diego State University.
