BOSTON – Sixteen emerging leaders in health care access have been named to the sixth class of the Massachusetts Institute for Community Health Leadership (MICHL). MICHL is designed to help those with leadership potential increase their personal impact and enhance their health organization’s influence in the health care system. The 18-day educational program takes place over the course of nine months, offering a highly experiential curriculum, with classroom work, peer-to-peer exchanges and collaborative learning. During the program, students develop and implement a project that addresses a health care issue impacting the uninsured and low-income people in Massachusetts.
