School of Community Medicine Professor Receives National Fellowship for Women in Health Care Leadership
Juell Homco, Ph.D., MPH, assistant professor in the Department of Medical Informatics at the OU-TU School of Community Medicine at OU-Tulsa, has been named a 2022 Carol Emmott Fellow.
The fellowship is a signature initiative of the Carol Emmott Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to inclusive gender equity at the highest levels of health care leadership and governance.
The Carol Emmott Fellowship awards a select number of positions each year to women professionals in health care who are making lasting change in their communities and institutions, and who serve as exemplary advocates for equity in the workplace and beyond.
Homco leads the OU-TU School of Community Medicine’s community analytics efforts. This team is responsible for providing advanced data analytics, performance dashboards and quality improvement support to the OU Health Physicians clinics, the Oklahoma Primary Healthcare Improvement Cooperative (OPHIC), the Sooner Health Access Network and numerous multidisciplinary researchers across Oklahoma.
The 14-month fellowship program includes a series of in-person convergence conferences with monthly webinar discussions led by some of the brightest minds in health and policy leadership. Fellowship recipients also receive mentorship throughout their tenure from nationally recognized senior executive health leaders.
Carol Emmott Fellows are nominated by their sponsoring organizations. The competitive process includes the submission of an original impact project proposal designed to accelerate action toward equity in their institutions and communities.
