Immunize Nevada’s Lisa Coker Accepted to American Express Leadership Program

Las Vegas, Nev. (June 2, 2016) - Immunize Nevada’s outreach and volunteer manager Lisa Coker has been accepted to the American Express Leadership Program through the Center for Creative Leadership. The program offers 48 emerging leaders from across the country an opportunity to participate in a marquis leadership development training program that includes a feedback-intensive learning environment and hands-on activities to enhance the leadership capacity of all the attendees. To provide the intensive leadership training experience to smaller, more grassroots organizations, in 2010 American Express and CCL added a Leadership Academy for emerging leaders in the Points of Light network. This Academy serves 24 people annually during the National Conference on Volunteering and Service.

Coker had to complete a rigorous application process to be accepted into the program. "I’m honored and excited to be part of this prestigious program,” Coker said. “I’m looking forward to applying these leadership skills to increase positive health outcomes throughout our community.”

As Immunize Nevada’s outreach and volunteer manager, she is responsible for managing graduate and undergraduate internship programs, building capacity through skill-based volunteers and developing strategic community partnerships and events throughout the state. Coker brings 10 years of public health, leadership, partnership building and event planning experience to her role, having previously worked on health issues concerning minority populations, childhood obesity and college students.

The Center for Creative Leadership is a top-ranked, global provider of executive education that develops better leaders through its exclusive focus on leadership education and research.

Immunize Nevada is widely recognized as Nevada’s trusted resource for immunizations and community health for all ages by fostering education and statewide collaboration. Immunize Nevada’s vision is healthy communities across Nevada protected from vaccine-preventable disease.
