Leah Presentation Day
Doctor of Nursing Practice students Jane Kim and Noah Weatherton presented their leadership projects at the LEAH Presentation Day on June 12. Jane and Noah successfully completed the one year Leadership Education in Adolescent Health (LEAH). LEAH is an interdisciplinary program funded by the Maternal Child Health Bureau dedicated to training graduate students, post-graduate fellows, and mid-career adolescent health professionals in medicine, nursing, nutrition, psychology and social work to be leaders in adolescent health. Trainees spend one year receiving concentrated training in leadership skills, research, public health, advocacy, public policy, cultural competence, community engagement, and health services delivery for adolescents and complete a leadership project under the guidance of their faculty mentor. Dr. Mayumi Willgerodt in Family and Child Nursing and Robyn Duran ARNP in the Department of Adolescent Medicine, Seattle Children’s Hospital serve as nursing faculty in the LEAH Training Fellowship.
