McLeod Seacoast Fellows class of 2016 graduates
After receiving a comprehensive, behind-the-scenes look at medicine and the complex issues driving healthcare today, the McLeod Seacoast Fellows, a group of established community leaders, have completed their program. The graduates were conferred as McLeod Seacoast Fellows by Frank Boulineau, McLeod Health Trustee, and Dick Tinsley, administrator of McLeod Loris Seacoast, at a ceremony on Wednesday, June 1, at the Surf Golf and Beach Club in North Myrtle Beach.|
The McLeod Seacoast Fellows program is designed to give community leaders an insiderís view of the healthcare industry. This innovative, new program was introduced to McLeod Seacoast in January 2016 and is composed of 10 professionals who have actively demonstrated leadership abilities in the community.
During their monthly sessions, this first McLeod Seacoast Fellows class received an intimate glimpse of the many facets of healthcare. The curriculum explored the services of cardiovascular, orthopedics, cancer and gastroenterology. Participants obtained a working knowledge of the healthcare needs in our region and observed first hand how McLeod Health is meeting those needs.
The goal of the McLeod Seacoast Fellows program is to nurture an understanding of medical care and treatments available and to make its participants well-educated partners in seeking answers to the challenges and opportunities facing healthcare. To help provide these answers, the McLeod Seacoast Fellows are able to speak with McLeod Health administrators and physicians and ask questions of the staff responsible for providing medical excellence for Horry and Brunswick counties.
