MHA Professor Emerita Wins National Award
Dr. Anne Osborne Kilpatrick, long-time member of the MUSC family and professor emeritus from the Department of Healthcare Leadership and Management, was awarded the Joan Fiss Bishop Award at the Section for Women in Public Administration meeting in New Orleans. The award, as noted in the meeting publication, is awarded to a woman who, by example and action, has promoted increased participation of women in the public service profession. Among other characteristics, the person must also possess innovative leadership qualities, professionalism and accomplishment in their own career, and commitment to the public service profession. Dr. Kilpatrick exemplifies these characteristics in her career, and continues to do so by working as an internal consultant at the Medical University and for the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center. Congratulations to Dr. Kilpatrick on her outstanding award!
