Every month, Jennings staff teams put together a display board that highlights one of Jennings’ 5 core values. Our July focus was Discovery of Potential. This lovely summer board is filled with “blossoms” that cite how individuals around campus have shared ways they’ve recently discovered potential. A few highlights: “I joined Resident Council,” “I took a creative writing class,” and “I learned to believe in myself.” Check out our creative displays on our Facebook photo album.
Jennings’ 2015 value: Discovery of Potential
How are you discovering your potential?

Hartford Foundation 2015 Change AGEnts Communications Institute July 13-15 in Chicago. The Hartford Change AGEnts Initiative accelerates sustained practice change that improves the health of older Americans, their families, and communities. It does this by harnessing the collective strengths, resources, and expertise of the John A. Hartford Foundation’s interprofessional community of more than 3,000 scholars, clinicians, and health system leaders. Susan and Renee engaged in interactive training on how to develop value propositions and use media and storytelling to help advance practice change at Jennings. Participants also worked on various aspects of their own projects and engage in a small group problem solving.
Renee and Susan represented Jennings as part of our Team A.W.A.R.E. project funded by a ChangeAGEnts grant. The project was initiated by Jennings board member and family member Evelyn Duffy of CWRU Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing.
