Finding Inspiration in Chicago with the Carol Emmott Foundation Community

It is only April, and it has already been a year to remember!

The Carol Emmott Foundation community gathered for the 2023 Annual Meeting and Christine Malcolm Symposium in Chicago last month, bringing together 150 top health leaders, partners, and keen minds from around the country.

Fellowship and Equity Collaborative member organization leadership, board members, fellows, and health partners and sponsors had the chance to connect in an intimate and memorable environment during this year’s open reception.

We honored Fawn Lopez, publisher emeritus of Modern Healthcare, with The Carol Emmott Foundation’s Amplifier Award for her guidance of Modern Healthcare’s long-term partnership, support of the Foundation’s mission, and numerous thought leadership opportunities for Fellows and Collaborative members on a national stage.

Other highlights:

  • We recognized the sixth cohort of Fellows who completed their Fellowship in February and welcomed the new cohort of 21 Fellows in the Class of 2023 who were just beginning their journey.
  • We held our first Leadership Council meeting of the year with almost 100% participation of this core visionary group of senior leaders who are ambassadors of the Foundation’s work in the industry.
  • The Fellowship Network met for its second in-person annual conference, with 69 of 115 Fellows in attendance, two days of programming, and ACHE, ACCME, and ANCC CEU credits available for the first time.

And we celebrated as we built a stronger community. We could not have summed it up any better than the attendee who said, “Together, we can create significant change in healthcare! I am not connected to any other network like Carol Emmott.”

We look forward to working together to see all that can be accomplished this year!
