Foundation Staff Involvement

In addition to their work on behalf of Sequoia Hospital, the Foundation team is often called upon to serve as experts in their field and to speak to other industry professionals regarding best practices and learnings.  

Sequoia Hospital Foundation staff members have spoken at each of the recent Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) international conferences and Foundation President Gail Rudolph is the chairperson of AHP’s upcoming 2017 Leading Forward Executive Summit in Nashville, TN.  Gail will also be speaking at the first annual HealthExec Institute Retreat in March.

In February of 2017, Foundation  team members Alex Wright, Christine Ackermann and Erin Callaghan each served as speakers and panelists at Dignity Health’s annual Philanthropy Summit in Scottsdale, AZ.   The Summit is an opportunity to bring together staff members from each of Dignity Health’s thirty-one foundations from across California, Nevada and Arizona. Over two days, attendees learn from experts from both within the Dignity Health system as well as from the outside.
