Families and individuals who receive services from Cempa Community Care in Chattanooga will be the ultimate beneficiaries of specialized management training completed by the organization’s Chief Operations Officer Cory Howard and Chief Executive Officer Shannon Stephenson, two of this year’s 47 graduates of the UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Health Care Executive Program.

This intensive 11 day residential program, conducted at the UCLA Anderson School of Management, is designed to enhance the management and leadership skills of executives from community health centers, AIDS service organizations and other community-based organizations that are devoted to expanding the quality and quantity of care, treatment and support delivered to underserved and vulnerable populations nationwide. The HCEP is designed and valuable for organizations to plan for and/or implement shifts in their organizational strategies to confront the new environment for healthcare delivery, said officials. 

Johnson & Johnson and UCLA Anderson developed the program in 2002 in response to the need for community based organizations to be better equipped to confront the mounting challenges in the nation’s health care system. The HCEP program is designed to sharpen leaders’ skills so they can help their health centers and AIDS service organizations improve and expand care for the people they serve.

Community health centers provide preventive and primary health care services to patients regardless of their ability to pay, particularly the medically underserved and those living in vulnerable communities. AIDS Service Organizations provide a range of free services to people infected or affected by HIV and AIDS. The program also inspires executives to create and set in motion a Community Health Improvement Project. Through a peer-and-faculty consulting process, participants develop a plan to resolve a significant issue or obstacle in their organization. Since the program’s inception in 2002, nearly 950 executives have graduated with enhanced management and leadership skills. 

Participants are selected through a competitive application process and Johnson and Johnson subsidizes the majority of the program costs (tuition, training materials, lodging and meals) for both the participant and their co-participant.

“The UCLA Anderson School of Management is delighted to partner with Johnson & Johnson to bring needed management training to community-based health care and health-related organizations in order to ensure the viability of our country’s community health care providers,” said Victor Tabbush, faculty director at UCLA Anderson for the Health Care Executive Program.
