EHL – Emerging Health Leaders

Emerging Health Leaders (EHL) includes formal learning opportunities, informal networking opportunities, enabling leadership development, as well as general information sharing. With strong support to move the yardsticks forward both from participants and from regional stakeholders (local health system or institution leaders), Adrienne Hagen (Canadian Medical Association) and Emily Gruenwoldt (Association of Canadian Academic Healthcare Organizations) were recognized as inaugural co-chairs of Emerging Health Leaders.

In 2008, Emerging Health Leaders launched four new nodes across Canada as the result of demand from young health leaders in Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal and Halifax. Each of these new nodes were initiated by individuals who recognized a similar gap in the leadership development marketplace and who approached Emerging Health Leaders with a proposal to launch a new node.
