Health Care Management students receive high honors in essay competition

Surbhi Kumar and Kaci McNeave, graduate students in Marymount’s Health Care Management program, received second and third place in the National Capital Health Executives (NCHE) essay competition of Fall 2019.

Their essays were selected from a large pool of candidates among other local universities (George Washington University, George Mason University and Georgetown University) offering Health Care Management graduate degrees. The essay provided a health care management perspective on how Vermont would recover from the latest measles outbreak with a $10 million donation.

Kaci came to Marymount from Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pa., where she received a bachelor’s in health and exercise physiology.  

Surbhi received her bachelor’s in biology from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2016. After graduation, she received clinical experience for one year and health care consulting experience for two years. Surbhi has recently accepted an internship position with Sibley Memorial Hospital, and will be working under the vice president of support services.
