He serves as the Hospital Association’s chief lobbyist advocating and coordinating hospital advocacy on behalf of North Carolina’s hospitals.

The Leadership Rowan Class will start their day at the breakfast and then venture out for the day’s session focused on a different aspect of the community. The last PIP breakfast meeting for this season will be on May 19 (Dr. Jim Johnson, UNC Chapel Hill – Leadership Rowan Graduation). The program will take a break in the summer and begin again in September.
