Patricia Dennehy Receives Irvine Leadership Award

by Joyce Sood, Communications Manager

GLIDE Health Services (GHS) Director Dr. Patricia Dennehy was recently awarded the 2012 James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award.  Out of pool of 300 nominees, Pat was one of only five to receive this prestigious award, which comes with a $125,000 gift.

“I am so honored to be recognized by the James Irvine Foundation,” says Pat. “With healthcare reform, we are hopeful that we will see the GLIDE Health Services model replicated across the state of California.”

GLIDE Health Services is a nurse-managed interdisciplinary healthcare center that provides primary care, mental health, substance abuse rehabilitation and complementary care to underserved and vulnerable populations.

The Clinic is a collaboration between UCSF School of Nursing, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, and GLIDE, and has been very successful at engaging in primary care with populations that experience numerous health disparities, providing effective treatment for individuals to stabilize and improve their health status.

“This award is in recognition of the creative work and commitment of all the staff of the Clinic,” remarks Pat. “Our program has improved the health of individuals and has together with other programs demonstrated the power of GLIDE to change our world.”

Join Dr. Patricia Dennehy and other industry leaders for a panel discussion “The Future of Universal Health Care: Is San Francisco Leading the Way?” on Wednesday, February 29 at 5-6:30pm at 330 Ellis Street. For more information about GLIDE Health Services, click here.

As one of our busiest days of the year draws to a close, we'd like to share a serendipitous find that we discovered in the archives today. In 1997, LIFE magazine featured GLIDE in a long piece entitled "A Church for the Twenty-First Century." Here is photo of Rev. Cecil, doin' his thing and handing out grocery bags to the community 20 years ago. At events like Grocery Bag Giveaway, our committed staff, community partners, dedicated volunteers & Tenderloin neighbors work side by side to remind our city, and our country, of the persistence of human goodness and unconditional love.
