  • Accolades

  • Association Recognizes Professor for Service
  •  Dr. Forney Fleming

    Dr. Forney Fleming

    Dr. Forney Fleming, Jindal School clinical professor and director of the master’s in Healthcare Management program, recently received a service award from the American College of Healthcare Executives at the annual North Texas ACHE chapter dinner.

    “ACHE is the definitive organization for top level health care executives, and I’m honored to be a recipient of this award,” said Fleming, who has served on the board of the local chapter for eight years and is on the editorial review board of ACHE’s Journal of Healthcare Management.

    In 2014 and 2015, he and a professor from UT Arlington served on the committee that set up the case study for the North Texas chapter’s annual graduate student competition. Fleming’s biggest ACHE contributions lately have been his service as a member of the local ACHE board. Additionally, he participates in the local chapter’s mentoring program.
