Ernani DeAraujo among 15 "Emerging Leaders" Geiger Gibson Program at the National Association of Community Health Centers Policy and Issues Forum

WASHINGTON, DC and NEW YORK (March 24, 2016) – Each year, the Geiger Gibson Program in Community Health Policy in the Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) at the George Washington University honors young professionals currently working in community health centers or health center primary care associations, and who exemplify the mission and vision of Drs. H. Jack Geiger and Count Gibson, pioneers for community health and human rights.

The 15 Emerging Leaders selected in the award’s 10th year were recognized on March 19th, 2016, during the annual meeting of the National Association of Community Health Centers in Washington, DC.

“The Emerging Leaders Award recognizes outstanding young men and women serving on the front lines of community health,” said Sara Rosenbaum, JD, the Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor of Health Law and Policy and founder of the Geiger Gibson Program at the Milken Institute SPH. “This year’s winners are part of a new generation of leaders charged with advancing the core mission of the community health centers movement.”

The community health center program started with just two community-based clinics in the late 1960s and has now grown to include more than 1,350 centers serving more than 24 million people, added Feygele Jacobs, President and CEO of the RCHN Community Health Foundation, whose ongoing gift supports the Geiger Gibson Program.

“The public health experts, doctors, health educators, and clinic administrators recognized this year as Emerging Leaders represent the future of the community health center movement,” noted Jacobs. “We are delighted to recognize their achievements in the field today and look forward to their contributions in the future.”

The Emerging Leader award was established in 2007 to highlight and share with the health center community the accomplishments of a new generation of health center leaders. One or more Emerging Leaders are selected annually by the Program, with the assistance of an advisory group comprised of health center leaders. The key qualities of leadership highlighted by this award are commitment, motivation, professional achievement, and leadership qualities that together further the health center mission.
