Congratulations to Leadership College Class of 2018

Tadhg O’Gara, MD, presents his MEDTalk on mindfulness in the office.

The Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership’s (KIPL) Leadership College class of 2018 received their certificates of completion for the year-long program at the LEADership Dinner on Friday, Oct. 19, the culminating event of the North Carolina Medical Society’s (NCMS) LEAD Health Care Conference in Raleigh. The 17 graduating scholars joined the growing ranks of KIPL alumni, which include many prominent health system and practice leaders in North Carolina.

Throughout the LEAD conference, the graduating scholars each presented 10-minute MEDTalks, summing up their Leadership College research projects. These talks, modeled on TEDTalks, were a highlight of the conference for many attendees, offering brief overviews of timely topics including integrating medical and dental care in a rural pediatric practice; transportation as a social determinant of health; postpartum depression screening at well-child visits; and the state of medical marijuana, among many others. Watch the NCMS website for videos of each of the MEDTalk presentations.

Scholars in the incoming Leadership College Class of 2019 kicked off their year of learning and also attended the LEAD Health Care Conference. The Class of 2019 includes 24 scholars making it one of the largest in the 16-year history of the Leadership College.

Congratulations to the 2018 graduates and the incoming scholars!
