Lauren Short is the Annual Giving Manager at Riverside HealthCare Foundation in the south Chicago suburbs. Prior to her development work, she worked in healthcare IT as a project manager for Epic Systems. Her passion for healthcare runs in her family with a range of medical career paths from physician to health administrator.

In warm weather, you’ll always find her outdoors but during winters in the Windy City, she’s more likely to be curled up inside with the latest leadership book.
