Topic: A Case Study In Leadership

Presenter: Emma Schwartz
Emma Schwartz is the President of the Medical Center of the Americas (MCA) Foundation, a non-profit organization known as the “keeper of the vision” of the MCA campus. In addition to a variety of campus master planning activities, the Foundation developed and is operating the first private biomedical research facility in the region: the Cardwell Collaborative (60,000 square feet of wet-labs, dry-labs, big data, office space, collaboration spaces, etc.). This project is the recipient of the Texas Governor’s Community Leadership Award for health through the OneStar Foundation, the El Paso Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Vision of Excellence award, the AIA El Paso design award and the TTU Alumni Design award, all in 2016. The MCA has also acquired land for redevelopment on the campus, funded the development of the TTUHSC Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing building and launched a biomedical research and commercialization institute that is working to start-up technology companies using various sources of innovation, including NASA patents. The MCA has raised and received commitments totaling over $60 million to help it achieve its mission from sources such as the City of El Paso, U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration and local philanthropists.
