Cathy K. Eddy Health Care Leadership Lecture Series

Collaboration, Innovation, Governance and Mentorship

Cathy K. Eddy founded the Alliance in 1996 and retired from the organization on April 30, 2018. Over the course of her career, she has championed the success of Alliance members, and has been an invaluable catalyst of collaboration throughout the health care industry. To honor her contributions, the Alliance has established the Cathy K. Eddy Health Care Leadership Lecture Series fund.

This program brings in nationally recognized experts to inform and inspire Alliance members.  These thought leaders push our thinking on the issues Cathy cares about most, which include collaboration, innovation, governance, and mentorship.
