Meet the Fifth Cohort of the Cedars-Sinai Managing to Leading Program

June 6, 2022

Thirty-two mid-level clinicians and administrative staff who work in community health centers and other safety-net organizations in Los Angeles have been selected to participate in the fifth cohort of the Cedars-Sinai’s Community Clinic Initiative: Managing to Leading (M2L) program. Funded by Cedars-Sinai and administered by Healthforce Center at UCSF, this program develops promising staff with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to effectively lead change and improve health care delivery.

Over the course of the year-long program, the participants will learn about the specific needs and priorities of Los Angeles's health care safety net and gain skills to rapidly lead change in this complex health care environment. Healthforce Center is excited to welcome participants from 22 clinics in the Los Angeles area — 3 of which are new clinics to the Managing to Leading program.
