Health Leader Takes on Opioid Crisis

Candy Stockton, MD, a fellow in our 15th cohort of the CHCF Health Care Leadership Program, uses the lessons learned and network of colleagues from our leadership development program to address one of the most urgent issues in health care: the opioid crisis.

Why is Nursing Leadership and Management Important?

As the health care system continues to undergo rapid change, the nature of nurses’ roles are changing as well, according to Healthforce faculty research.

They practice in nearly every setting of the health care system and many are poised to take on leadership roles.

Community Clinic Initiative Teaches Life-long Lessons

Leticia Lozano, LVN, the Health Center Manager at the Achievable Foundation, completed Cedars-Sinai Community Clinic Initiative: Managing to Leading Program in November.

This intensive year-long leadership development program, funded by a generous grant from Cedars-Sinai, has helped participants like Lozano guide their organizations through a challenging new healthcare landscape. Twenty-seven early-career managers were selected for the training to help strengthen the safety net in Los Angeles.
