Kim Van Eyck, PhD, director of health equity research, and Michelle Y. Williams, PhD, RN, executive director of research and health equity, described Clevinger’s exemplary leadership skills in their nomination letter:

“Mr. Clevinger developed an operational structure to support clinical trials research specific to the Stanford School of Medicine, which included onboarding and training 28 staff members and partnering with them to create individual development plans and succession planning. He has established clinical trials reporting and quality programs for his inpatient, enterprise, and analytics teams.

If you ask Mr. Clevinger about these accomplishments, he will tell you that his team is responsible for all these successes. Here is what one member of his team had to say. ‘Johnathan’s biggest accomplishment is building strong working relationships with his team and with stakeholders across the organization (e.g., nursing unit leaders, senior executives, revenue cycle teams, etc.). Johnathan is the kind of leader that pushes you to accomplish what you thought was impossible while supporting you and laughing with you along the way.’”
