Alumni NewsMatt Kuhlenbeck (MHA 2002), program director for the Responsive Portfolio at Missouri Foundation for Health, has been honored with a fellowship from the Terrance Keenan Institute for Emerging Leaders in Health Philanthropy. A project of Grantmakers in Health (GIH), the Institute has been naming fellows since 2010 on a bi-yearly basis. A total of 17 exceptional individuals were accepted as fellows in this year's class.
According to GIH, the Institute was created to "nurture talented practitioners who have shown the potential to be among the next generation of leaders in the field of health philanthropy, to build relationships among this cadre of emerging philanthropic leaders, and to connect them with established figures in the field."

Dr. Kanika Turner (MD/MPH 2014) is one of three graduating medical students to receive this year's John H. Gladney diversity award, a recognition given to students who promote and enhance diversity in the School of Medicine through academic performance, extracurricular or community activities, and organizational and committee involvement.
In the last four years, these students have led interest groups, spread the message of diversity on campus, mentored high school youth, hosted health fairs and educated medical fellow students about diversity-related issues in St. Louis and beyond.
Working with a variety of people in the community gave Turner a different perspective. "It's more about being approachable," she said. "It has shaped the scope of my practice. . . . This award goes hand in hand with my passion for family and community medicine." Read more about the awards HERE.
