Project Manager will advance team goals
Accompanying the New Year was the selection of Michael Mathy as Project Manager for the Community Medical Education Program. For the last four years, Mathy has served as Foundation Administrator for the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS), based in Memphis, Tenn.
As Project Manager, he will have a lead role in executing the planning, development and implementation of the Community Medical Education Program in the Green Bay and Central Wisconsin regions. This will involve working in partnership with the program’s Steering Committee, faculty-led work groups and Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) executive leadership alongside Faculty Director Paula Termuhlen, MD.
Mathy will also serve as a primary liaison to state-wide stakeholders and community partners.
“This program is an opportunity to solve a public policy challenge by training more primary care physicians to help the underserved parts of the state,” Mathy said. “I hope to use my skills and experience to capture the enthusiasm in the communities and turn it into action.”
His work with the AALAS broadened his knowledge of biomedical research and the health care industry, and Mathy’s diverse experiences balancing stakeholder needs, managing large projects, overseeing events and building consensus will be assets in his role with MCW.
Mathy was previously Executive Director of the Winnebago Home Builders Association in Oshkosh and Government Affairs Director for Valley Home Builders Association in Appleton. He served as campaign manager for a state Assembly race in Green Bay and spent three years as a legislative assistant.
“Michael brings enthusiasm and a strong commitment to making a difference for Wisconsin,” Dr. Termuhlen said. “His background of working with nonprofit organizations and lobbying in Madison will help us reach out across the state as we develop our regional campuses. We are thrilled that he has joined the team.”
Mathy graduated from University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and studied abroad for a semester at St. Mary’s College in London.
