Keith Cernak, MBA 1984
Created an International Model for Partnership Development
Cernak was a social entrepreneur well before the term was popularized. After creating multi-million dollar joint ventures at Weyerhaeuser, in the 1990s he created Partners, the largest consortium of health systems and businesses aimed at helping disenfranchised populations. Partners won national awards, served as an international model for the World Health Organization and has been presented worldwide. Today, Cernak continues to make the world a better place through his involvement in partnership development and capacity building with the World Health Organization and other Global Health Groups to address critical health issues around the world.
