Kennedy Forum- Boston

1380188_650257951662270_1949309649_nLinea was honored to be invited to the Inaugural Kennedy Forum in Boston in October. There she was able to hear such exceptional speakers as Representative Patrick Kennedy, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary Kathleen Sibelius and Chelsea Clinton. The importance of community healthcare was discussed as well as policy, workplace support, community engagement, stigma and much more. Linea was overjoyed to see all of her friends in the mental health community represented as she got to reconnect with friends from DBSA, NAMI, the wonderful Janine Francolini from the Flawless Foundation, the gracious Brandon Staglin of IMHRO and our good friend Delaney Ruston of MyDoc productions. Many exciting personal pursuits also came out of the visit for Linea as she came home and quickly applied to Brown University’s Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership program and the AAPD Hearne Leadership Award, as well as quickly calling her agent about a second book. Linea decided to apply for everything to see what she gets. Results to come!
