    The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) has selected Kameron Matthews, MD, JD, FAAFP as the 2018 James C. Puffer, MD/American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Fellow.

    LEXINGTON, Ky. (PRWEB) October 19, 2018

    The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) has selected Kameron Matthews, MD, JD, FAAFP as the 2018 James C. Puffer, MD/American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Fellow. Dr. Matthews currently serves as Acting Deputy Under Secretary of Health for Community Care at the Veterans Health Administration in Washington, DC. She is one of three outstanding health professionals selected for the class of 2018 NAM Fellows.

    Dr. Matthews earned her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University and her law degree from the University of Chicago. She completed her residency in Family Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Matthews has focused her career on underserved patient populations, having worked as a staff physician at Cook County Jail and with Erie Family Health Center, a large community health center also in Chicago. She most recently served as Chief Medical Officer of Mile Square Health Center within the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System. Dr. Matthews’ honors and awards include the National Medical Quality Forum's 2017 40 Under 40 Leaders in Minority Health, 2015 National Medical Association Council for the Concerns of Women Physicians Emerging Trailblazer Award, the 2015 NACHC Health Professions Education and Training Award, and the 2015 Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Health Braintrust Congressman Louis Stokes Public Health Advocate Award.

    Dr. Matthews serves as a member of the advisory board of the National Medical Quality Forum, a founding board member of Physicians for Criminal Justice Reform, a member of the alumni council of National Medical Fellowships, and an analyst with PolicyPrescriptions.org. Her career interests focus on access to care, pipeline workforce development, and healthcare disparities. As a passion outside of work, she co-directs the Tour for Diversity in Medicine, an initiative seeking to bring premedical enrichment activities to minority high school and undergraduate students across the country.

    As a Puffer/ABFM/NAM Anniversary Fellow, Dr. Matthews will receive a research stipend of $25,000. Named in honor of James C. Puffer, M.D., president and chief executive officer of the ABFM, the fellowship program enables talented, early career health policy and science scholars in family medicine to participate in the work of the Academies and further their careers as future leaders in the field. The James C. Puffer, MD/ABFM Fellowship was established under the NAM Fellowship program in 2011.

    NAM Anniversary Fellows continue their main responsibilities while engaging part-time over a two-year period in the Academies’ health and science policy work. A committee appointed by the president of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) selects fellows based on their professional accomplishments, potential for leadership in health policy in the field of family medicine, reputation as scholars, and the relevance of their expertise to the work of NAM and the IOM.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 posts $500M sales and it’s still a disappointment Activision’s latest entry in the venerable Call of Duty franchise is cleaning house and then some. After only a few days on the market, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has already made half-a-billion dollars — and yet apparently that’s still not enough to impress some of the company’s investors. According to Activision, the number of players over the opening week is a new record for the series, and it had more airtime on Twitch than any other game in the series. It was actually quite dizzying how many streamers were playing the game. Even seasoned Fortnite veterans in my follow list were taking…

    Founder of Agency Growth Secrets acknowledges Michael Connolly (former Army Officer and CEO of Sonobi) for his exceptional leadership qualities. Connolly’s knack for leadership earned him the Ernst & Young Florida Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Advertising and Marketing.

    LARGO, Fla. (PRWEB) October 19, 2018

    Josh Harris, founder of Agency Growth Secrets, recently recognized the leadership skills of former military member Michael Connolly. Connolly garnered attention by Ernst & Young when he received their regional award for Entrepreneur of the Year for Advertising and Marketing, in Orlando, Florida. The award followed his nomination in 2016. He was ultimately bestowed the title on June 7, 2018. Harris, Agency Growth Secrets Founder, noted that the CEO of Sonobi and recipient of the award has significant leadership qualities that were likely developed during his time in the Army.

    Harris has often acknowledged that veterans are well-suited for the corporate world and entrepreneurship due to the leadership skills they develop in the service. Regarding Connolly’s leadership, Harris comments, “Good leadership requires a unique skill set that blends determination, problem-solving abilities, integrity, and innovation. In business, you can’t just rule over your team with an iron fist on a path of destruction. It takes a precise balance of drive, patience, and personal responsibility.”

    Connolly confirmed that his philosophy of leadership is based on a teamwork mindset. Upon receiving his award, Connolly stated “Business is a team sport and being selected as a winner recognizes the merit of what Sonobi has achieved so far. I’m thrilled to have received this award on behalf of the team’s hard work and determination to build this company.” Connolly’s emphasis on collaboration within his company is likely a result of his experience leading soldiers in high-stress situations, according to Harris.

    Harris takes these qualities to heart and expands on Connolly’s award further, stating, “Each player has a vital role to the company’s success, and it’s my job to ensure that workers at every level are taking ownership of their tasks and contributing to the overall performance of the company.” Harris observes the performance of soldiers like Connolly in the business sector and takes note of their ability to lead by inspiring employees and holding them accountable at every level.

    In considering veteran entrepreneurs like Connolly, Harris also comments on the need to remain humble as a leader. In developing a healthy and prosperous business, entrepreneurs must be willing to take criticism from others. He states, “Remain honest and open to critique, and use it to empower your position and decision-making. Listening and taking time to understand each problem from every angle will give you an advantage in managing your team.” He boils it down to a simple statement of ownership, saying “Maintain a humble spirit with an appreciation for criticism.” In watching veteran leaders, Harris believes taking personal responsibility for the company is a key factor in their success.

    Harris elaborates on the qualities of great leaders like Connolly, saying that success is “...all dependant on a leader who provides guidance that’s firm, informative, encouraging, and honest.” He says, “If you can incentivize your team, remain humble, and lead with conviction, you’re sure to create growth like Michael Connolly, worthy of being recognized.”

    Joshua Harris is an entrepreneur who is is passionate about helping US Military Veterans become business owners. Recently, Agency Growth Secrets and Harris launched a site dedicated to supporting US Military Veteran entrepreneurs. Harris has been featured in both Forbes and Entrepreneur and is part of an elite group of entrepreneurs—the Oracles. He lives in Largo, Florida with his wife and 2 daughters.
