How We Support the MetroWest Health Leadership Program
Since 2006, the foundation has supported the MetroWest Health Leadership Program, training over 150 individuals to be resourceful and effective leaders ready to take on a variety of community issues and needs. Through this program and a variety of training opportunities, the foundation is working to prepare senior health and human service staff from local agencies to lead community change efforts and build equitable systems of care.
Due to COVID-19, the MetroWest Health Leadership Program will take a one year hiatus. The foundation looks forward to welcoming the class of 2022 when it is safe to resume in-person learning.

Health Resources in Action
“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.”
