Each year, the HLD brings together a diverse mix of experienced leaders from a wide range of health and health care settings and professions to build their individual collaborative leadership skills and prepare them to lead efforts aimed at improving quality and expanding access to affordable care. While these dedicated individuals come from different backgrounds and communities, they share a deep commitment to making a difference here in Maine.
Using the successful format of ICL’s 18-year old Leadership Intensive (over 500 alums) and the health and health care expertise of the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership, the program provides participants with the skills and confidence needed to address Maine’s growing health and health care issues. Through this program, scores of emerging leaders across the state will be prepared to address potentially contentious issues and to develop much needed collaborative solutions for Maine.
