Geisinger Foundation board taps Bucknell president for chair

Geisinger Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger Health System, has appointed John Bravman, president of Bucknell University, as chair of its board of directors.

The Lewisburg, Pa.-based university already has an established relationship with the health system. The entities are currently collaborating on an autism and developmental medicine center, a healthcare delivery research initiative and several other research partnerships.

"Geisinger has established itself as an extraordinary and innovative leader in health services. I treasure our partnership, and I am deeply honored to serve in this new capacity," Mr. Bravman said in a statement published by Bucknell. "Bucknell and Geisinger share a commitment to our communities and a vision for innovation and excellence that benefits not just our respective constituents, but society as a whole."

Mr. Bravman has been president of Bucknell University since 2010 and a member of Geisinger's board since 2012.

"John Bravman is a highly respected, dynamic and innovative leader with a long history of success," Geisinger Health System President and CEO David Feinberg, MD, said in the Bucknell statement. "He is guiding Bucknell through an extraordinary period of growth and achievement, and the Geisinger family looks forward to his leadership as our board chairman."
