Dr. Bradley named fellow at the Daniels College of Business
The University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business is known for taking a holistic approach to business, looking beyond the finances of an organization to define success. But, now the Business College is going further, appointing Dr. Kent Bradley to develop course work around people sustainability. Bradley, MD, MPH, MBA, is the new Daniels Fellow for Leadership in Health and Well-being.
“We are at an unprecedented time of change in health and health care, where principle-centered business leadership is needed in the new health economy.” Bradley says. “We will be developing future leaders who understand how they can make an impact on the well-being of our nation through new health related products and services, improving existing models of care or by creating a healthy culture within their organization.”
Bradley, who graduated from Daniels’ Executive MBA program, is retired Army Colonel, a graduate of the United States Military Academy and has a Master in Public Health from the University of Minnesota. He earned his Medical Degree from the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, Bethesda, Maryland, and is board certified in Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
“This is a logical and important next step in the evolution of the College’s portfolio of management education activities,” says Daniels Dean Brent Chrite. “Few industries have been so profoundly impacted by the disruptions, competitive pressures and technological innovations as the U.S. health care industry. DU and Daniels are both uniquely capable of strengthening the individual and institutional capacities necessary to succeed and thrive in today’s critical health care marketplace. We’re delighted to welcome Dr. Kent Bradley to our community and I look forward to working with Kent in create and deliver the next generation of programs for tomorrow’s health care leaders.”
Bradley is the former President of Safeway Health, a health technology solution and service provider supporting total worker health strategies for large commercial clients. He also served as the Senior Vice President, Chief Medical Officer for Safeway where he provided advisory support to the major business line leaders as well as the internal culture of health efforts.
Bradley’s military career was noted for his rapid promotion and selection to lead in complex environments that included operations in Panama, Rwanda, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iraq. He has led civic action initiatives in Honduras, Bolivia, Kuwait and Thailand.
He is the founder of BTN Advisors supporting several health technology companies. He is on the Board of Directors for the Dignity Health System, Board of Directors of US Healthworks, Chairman of the Board for Core Communities, and involved in multiple community health and well-being efforts.
