Program Director Receives Doctorate

Twila Weiszbrod, Director of the Health Administration programs at Saint Joseph’s college, recently received her Doctor of Business Administration degree from NorthCentral University. For her dissertation she quantitatively studied the relationship between emotional intelligence and leadership competencies in health care, finding a significant correlation!  If anyone wants more information about the findings she would be happy to provide detail if they want to email her.

Dr. Weiszbrod received her Bachelor Science in Health Care Administration from Saint Joseph’s College in 2001 and her Master of Public Administration from California State University at Fresno in 2004. She then served as Adjunct Faculty at Saint Joseph’s College from June 2003 to June 2006 and became Assistant Director of the HA programs in 2006 and Program Director in 2007. Under her direction, the programs have grown and expanded to include programs in Radiologic Science Administration and Catholic Health Leadership and a highly successful affiliation with the Benedictine Health System.
