Class of 2022: Surviving childhood cancer inspired Jeff Renner to innovate pediatric health care
Pursuing a master’s in health administration, Renner wants to make compassionate leadership and equal access to high-quality care the standard in pediatric health care.
Renner started as an engineering major, but made the switch to health professions. Intrigued by the VCU College of Health Professions’ affiliation to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, Renner enrolled in the health administration program. “It was a perfect fit. The health administration track has an emphasis on compassionate leadership and I found mentors to help me launch a career in pediatrics,” he said.
