Leadership in Health Policy
Dr. Roxanne Hicks, an R3 in the Primary Care Track of the Seattle Internal Medicine Residency Program, has been accepted into the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) Leadership in Health Policy Program (LEAHP).
The Leadership in Health Policy Program aims to develop SGIM members who are effective and active health policy advocates and local health policy experts, leaders, and teachers; to offer health policy career development resources and opportunities to all SGIM members; and to develop an expanding, national cadre of Health Policy Committee (HPC) members and broaden engagement in the Society’s health policy efforts.
LEAHP is a 1-year program for a national cohort of approximately 20 participants.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Dr. Hicks to develop leadership skills in health policy,” said Program Director Ken Steinberg. “I’m so proud and excited that she was accepted into the program!”
