HANYS Announces Establishment of "The Adell Y. Smith HANYS Healthcare Leadership Scholarship"
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) announces the establishment of "The Adell Y. Smith HANYS Healthcare Leadership Scholarship." This scholarship will support graduate students of University at Albany's School of Public Health.
Adell Y. Smith, an executive assistant employed by HANYS since 1988, established this endowed scholarship to help women of underrepresented populations prepare for leadership roles in healthcare and healthcare management.
"I want to help young people–women, especially," said Ms. Smith. "I was so inspired to see Bea Grause become the first female president of HANYS, and I thought wouldn't it be great if we found an African-American version of Bea? I hope more minority women will see the opportunity for leadership roles in healthcare policy."
