Perserverance, innovation and leadership
Join us on March 21 to celebrate companies that are aspiring, achieving and advancing in the City of Blue Ash at the 2nd Annual Blue Ash Business Awards. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Yousuf J. Ahmad, divisional senior vice president and chief network transformation officer at Mercy Health and three markets of Catholic Health Partners.
In his role Dr. Ahmad is focused on transforming the delivery and implementation of primary and specialty care throughout the Central Division of Catholic Health Partners including physician offices, hospitals, home health, long-term care, and other services. He also leads the Mercy Health region in preparation for healthcare reform initiatives. His work recently earned him recognition as a finalist for the Business Courier’s 2013 Health Care Heroes Award in the Innovator category. He is also a current member of Leadership Cincinnati.
On March 21, Dr. Ahmad will share his amazing personal story of Perseverance: One Man’s Journey from Abu-Dhabi to Cincinnati. From arriving in the United States as a teenager, challenging the status quo, overcoming obstacles and beating the odds to follow his dreams, Dr. Ahmad’s story is unique, inspirational and a lesson to all about the strength of believing in one’s self.
