Dr. Lesley Clack is an Associate Professor and Department Chair of Health Sciences at Florida Gulf Coast University and is an ACHE WFC Board Member. Throughout her academic career, she has focused on the development and direction of health administration programs and teaching and mentoring students to obtain management and leadership positions in healthcare systems – a core pillar of ACHE.
One of the ways Dr. Clack has been able to engage with students in healthcare management and leadership is through studying abroad! Dr. Clack recently launched the Comparative Healthcare Systems in Europe study abroad program at FGCU, where she and 17 students saw first-hand what other healthcare systems were like in Switzerland and Italy.
Through valuable experiences like these, Dr. Clack can offer mentorship, guidance, and insight into the complex world of healthcare beyond our backyard. Mentorship and learning opportunities like these are crucial elements to cultivating the next generation of healthcare leaders, which Dr. Clack embraces with both FGCU and ACHE Western Florida Chapter.
