The Thomas C. Dolan Executive Diversity Program was established by the Foundation of the American College of Healthcare Executives to honor Dolan - who served as president and CEO of ACHE from 1991-2013 - for his long-standing service to the profession of healthcare leadership and to further his strong commitment to achieving greater diversity among senior healthcare leaders. Scholars will receive tuition to attend ACHE's most notable educational offerings, including the 2015 Senior Executive or Executive Program and ACHE's 2015 Congress on Healthcare Leadership. Enhanced self-awareness, critical leadership skills and an expanded network of leaders will prepare scholars for their future roles.
