Rutgers: Student Named Rising Star by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association

Ms. Kelly Lenahan, a Rutgers School of Public Health graduating student in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, has been named a 2019 Rising Star by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA).

Each year, HBA selects Rising Stars who are professionals in various sectors of the healthcare industry, including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, advertising, public relations, medical education and market research, among other fields. Rising Stars are emerging leaders in their field who have under 15 years’ experience, exhibit dedication to the healthcare field, contribute to their organization, and are role models. Ms. Lenahan currently works as a Project Manager at ISPOR – The Professional Society for Health Economics and Outcomes Research, leading all global health technology assessment initiatives and helping members write scientific manuscripts for the Society’s journal, Value in Health. She has her undergraduate degree in health services administration from St. John’s University in Queens, NY, and has spent the past 12 years working in healthcare fields ranging from retail pharmacy to the pharmaceutical industry to health economics and outcomes research.

“It is an honor to be recognized as an emerging leader in the healthcare field and to be listed as the same caliber as some of the great women who came before me who are leading healthcare today,” Ms. Lenahan says. “My experiences at the Rutgers School of Public Health have also helped guide me to where I am today and I look forward to seeing what the future holds.”

Ms. Lenahan is graduating in May with her MPH.
