Michael S. Ferrara, Dean, College of Health and Human Services, UNH

For this first episode of the Health Leader Forge I will be interviewing Michael Ferrara, the Kent P. Falb professor of Kinesiology and the Dean of the College of Health and Human Services at the University of New Hampshire. As you will soon hear, Dean Ferrara’s career is a blend of award winning practitioner, world class researcher, policy influencer, and health care leader. It is also with his support that this podcast is being produced.
