Jolly named a 2018 Eisenhower fellow

National program recognizes midcareer professionals

January 17, 2018

Andwele Jolly, DPT, a business director in the Department of Medicine, is one of 11 midcareer professionals chosen from a national pool of candidates for a prestigious Eisenhower Fellowship.

Jolly is business director in the Divisions of Allergy & Immunology, Rheumatology and Hematology. The Eisenhower Fellowships is a program that aims to enhance international understanding and promote peaceful dialogue. The 2018 fellows are “thought leaders” in sustainable food production, quantum computing, transportation, sustainable design, education, labor migration and health care.

Since 1999, the program has sent nearly 300 U.S. citizens and permanent residents abroad. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, chairman of the program, said in a statement: “We are pleased to provide this group of exceptional American young leaders the unique opportunity to meet with influential leaders across the world to expose them to new ideas, grow professionally and enhance international understanding.”

Jolly has been with the School of Medicine since 2012, when he became the school’s first executive management fellow. Since then, he has served on the board of directors of the Missouri Foundation for Health, Myrtle Hilliard Davis Comprehensive Health Centers and the St. Louis chapter of the National Association of Health Services Executives, among other roles.
