  • Two NEW Leadership Nevada 2016 Updates

    We have two very exciting announcements to make regarding this year’s NEW Leadership Nevada Summer Institute, taking place June 6 – 11, 2016, on the UNLV campus.

    First, we would like to recognize Bank of America Merrill Lynch as this year’s Presenting Sponsor. Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s support at this level is instrumental to our efforts to develop a sustainable program available to students state-wide without any cost to the student. Thank you Bank of America Merrill Lynch!

    Second, we are delighted to announce that Kate Xue Zhong, M.D. will give the Keynote Address at this year’s NEW Leadership Nevada Keynote Dinner, taking place June 9, 2016. Dr. Zhong, the Senior Director of Clinical Research and Development at the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, will share her compelling life story which led her to the field of medicine, as well as what has influenced her values and leadership path. Dr. Zhong’s address is sure to make for an amazing evening!
