Kraft Fellow Leadership Seminars

Leadership Development Seminars are weekly lunch-time conversations between the Kraft Fellows and a series of highly accomplished individuals, each of whom has carved out a unique career path related to community health. Discussions are informal and candid, and serve as an inspiration and touchstone to Kraft Fellows as they think about ways to craft their own novel contributions as future leaders in this field.
