PUBLIC HEALTH INFORMATICS LEADERSHIP TO IMPROVE HEALTH OUTCOMES: AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. DAVID A. ROSS

In this leadership video, Dr. Ed Baker talks with David A. Ross, ScD, Chief Executive Officer and President of The Task Force for Global Health.

” In this interview, he shares his own leadership philosophy which is characterized by:

  1. Being patient and persistent — The public health system moves slowly and will eventually respond to consistent and focused leadership.
  2. Being kind and respectful — Honesty and integrity should be your calling card.
  3. Rolling up your sleeves and being ready to help out when needed.
  4. Building relationships — Public health is a relationship business; leaders must involve others and defer to them when it helps the herd to move forward.”
