CAHME is an accrediting body for academic programs that offer a professional master’s degree in healthcare management education. Every year, the organization partners with Canon Solutions America to recognize educational institutions that strive to instill ideals of sustainability and social responsibility in future healthcare leaders with the Award for Sustainability in Healthcare Management Education and Practice. This award signifies the critical role education plays in inspiring future healthcare leaders to enact positive change incorporating the ideals of cultural competency, community involvement, environmental focus, and sustainability.
“Receiving the CAHME/Canon Solutions America Award for Sustainability in Healthcare Management Education and Practice is a true honor for us,” said Jean Abraham, PhD, professor and interim head, SPH Division of Health Policy & Management. “It really represents a true affirmation of the significance of the efforts we’ve put forth to enhance sustainability. In April of 2020, we released our five-year strategic plan, which included a call to promote greater diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are ensuring that our students have a solid foundation in understanding the root causes of health and healthcare disparities.”
The Minnesota MHA program was recognized for its efforts to manifest sustainability ideals that contribute to student and community development, focusing on enhancing cultural competency, increasing community involvement, acquiring an environmental focus, and increasing access to healthcare services. The program was honored at the CAHME Award Ceremony on March 27 at the ACHE Congress in Chicago, IL.
“We are excited to join Canon Solutions America in awarding this honor to the University of Minnesota,” said Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE, President and CEO of CAHME. “Since 1968, Minnesota’s graduate program in healthcare administration has provided students the training and support they need to become thoughtful, skilled, and effective leaders within healthcare.”

Kowalczuk, president of Canon Solutions America. “On behalf of Canon Solutions America, congratulations to the University of Minnesota on this great achievement.”
