Leadership Session Brings Heath Care Collaboration Among Institutions

Leadership Session Brings Heath Care Collaboration Among Institutions


The University of Cincinnati (UC)’s four Academic Health Center Colleges, Cedarville Colleges of Pharmacy and Nursing and Wright State College of Medicine hosted 125 students and faculty at an interprofessional and cross-university collaborative leadership event held at Kowalewski Hall on Oct. 13.

"This is the first time, to my knowledge, that health care educators from multiple healthcare disciplines from these three key universities in southwest Ohio came together in support of collaborative learning.” says  Neil MacKinnon, PhD, dean of the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy. 

The event featured guest speaker Tim Elmore, an authority on preparing Generations Y and Z to serve as leaders in their schools, places of work and communities, who discussed "Generations in the Workplace.”

Elmore is the president of Growing Leaders, a nonprofit that provides 6,000 public schools, universities, civic organization, and corporations with resources that foster the growth of young leaders.  He is also the author of more than 30 books on leadership and speaks at more than 100 events annually. 

"It was an energizing evening of interprofessional, inter-institutional engagement,” remarks attendee Jill Boone, PharmD, a professor in the Winkle College of Pharmacy.
The presentation, she says, "was insightful regarding key generational differences and challenged the audience to know their patient, as well as co-worker, regarding the impact that generation has on expectations, communication and relationships.”  

Following Elmore’s talk, participants dispersed into interprofessional discussion groups that delved into the generational topic and shared perspectives regarding application in practice. 

The evening was co-sponsored by the UC Winkle College of Pharmacy and Cedarville College of Pharmacy.
