Description:

Join The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship (ASF) on Saturday, Nov. 3 in Cambridge, MA for the 2012 Schweitzer Leadership Conference—an unparalleled opportunity for emerging and established health professionals to learn from strategic and innovative leaders who are shaping the way we think, talk, and act when it comes to health equity, health care, social change, and public policy.

Conference speakers include some of the nation's premier leaders who are addressing health disparities and working to build community capacity: Adewale Troutman, MD, MPH, MA, CPH (President-Elect, American Public Health Association; Featured Expert, PBS’ Unnatural Causes), Sanjiv Chopra, MD, MACP (Author, Leadership by Example), Donald L. Weaver, MD (Chief Medical Officer, National Association of Community Health Centers), Donna Latson Gittens (Founder and Principal, MORE Advertising, a causemedia company), and—as ASF just announced last week—Charles Homer, MD, MPH (Co-Founder and President, National Initiative for Children’s Healthcare Quality).

For the first time, the 2012 Schweitzer Leadership Conference is open to the public instead of solely to ASF’s program alumni (Fellows for Life). The conference is underpinned by ASF’s two decades of expertise in developing health leaders, and will equip conference participants with new strategies and skills for effective leadership in today’s particular social, economic, technological, and political environment. Visit www.schweitzerfellowship.org/conference for full details (including conference location, schedule, speakers & sessions, sponsorship opportunities, and lodging).

The registration deadline is October 15. Student and member rates are available. Visit www.schweitzerfellowship.org/conference for full details.
