Bauermeister Selected for Aspen Institute Health Innovators Fellowship

Twenty one senior health care leaders were chosen to join the Aspen Institute Health Innovators Fellowship’s fifth class and the program’s network of health care entrepreneurs and innovators from across the United States.

These leaders – including Penn Nursing’s José Bauermeister, PhD, Presidential Professor, and Director of the Penn Program on Sexuality, Technology & Action Research (PSTAR) – will embark on a two-year Fellowship that will strengthen their leadership and challenge them to develop new approaches to improve the health and wellbeing of Americans.

Fellows from this class hail from all parts of the country and work across the health care ecosystem, with expertise ranging from mental health and medicine to health care technology and venture capital. They represent business, nonprofit, and government organizations.

The Aspen Institute launched the Fellowship in 2015 in partnership with Prisma Health, South Carolina’s largest not-for-profit healthcare system and an advocate for healthy living initiatives across the state.

The Health Innovators Fellows will spend four weeks over the course of two years exploring their leadership, core values, desired legacies, and vision for the health care system. All Fellows commit to launching a leadership venture that will stretch and challenge them and have a positive and lasting impact on health care in the U.S. The Health Innovators Fellows join more than 3,000 other entrepreneurial leaders from over 60 countries to become members of the Aspen Global Leadership Network (AGLN).
