Congratulations to our 2018 MetroWest Health Leadership Program Graduates

Difficulty recruiting and retaining staff, budget cuts, federal policy changes that undermine client service, less charitable giving and increased competition for funds -these are just some of the issues that our Class of 2018 confronted in their final class presentations.  But armed with new knowledge and skills gleaned from the six-month MetroWest Health Leadership Program, they made convincing arguments to foundation staff on how they would deal with these and other issues as leaders of nonprofit agencies.
Having aced the final, the class retreated to John Harvard's for a graduation party, complete with diplomas!  Senior Program Officer Rebecca Donham called the class, "an amazing group of professionals that jelled from the very beginning." One graduate said, "The program exceeded my expectations, especially in terms of the quality of the faculty, the depth of the presentations and the applicability to my work."
