Erica Dalziel, the administrator at Alden Estates of Jefferson Post-Acute Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, has been chosen to attend the prestigious National Emerging Leadership Summit (NELS) in Washington, D.C. this June.

NELS is an invitation-only summit for Health Care Administrators in Health and Aging Services who have been in the field for less than 10 years. Dalziel was one of only 25 chosen to go to D.C. this year to learn about emerging trends in health care and network with fellow emerging health care leaders to strategize, advocate, connect and innovate the future of health care and the aging services administration profession.

“Erica has displayed remarkable leadership ability in a short period of time,” says Robert J. Molitor, chief executive officer of Alden. “She is a true asset to Alden and already possesses the qualities we look for in a leader – compassion, honesty, integrity, dedication, innovation and respect among others.”

Dalziel served as an intern at Alden Estates at Jefferson while at UW Eau Claire as part of its Center for Health Administration and Aging Services Excellence (CHAASE) program. Upon receiving her degree in Health Care Administration, she was hired full time.
