About the Institute for Diversity in Health Management
In 1994, the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), the National
Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE), and the American Hospital
Association (AHA) responded to the lack of diversity in the health care
management ranks by founding the Institute for Diversity in Health Management
(IFD). The Association of Hispanic Healthcare Executives (AHHE) and, more
recently, the Catholic Health Association (CHA) signed on as sponsors, and in
2002 the IFD Board of Directors voted to formally affiliate with the AHA.
The Institute for Diversity in Health Management, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit
organization, works closely with health services organizations and educators
to expand leadership opportunities for ethnic minorities in health services
management. The Institute’s mission is to increase the number of people of
color in health services administration to better reflect the increasingly
diverse communities they serve and to improve opportunities for professionals
already in the health care field. To accomplish this, the Institute has
designed several initiatives to generate significant long-term results through
educational programs, summer internships, professional development and
leadership conferences. For more information, visit
