LENNARD M. GETTZ, Ed.D,
STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS | 2.0 DEVELOPMENT OF HEALTH INNOVATORS

Recognized in the healthcare and industrial communities as a "brainstormer" and a uniter of visionaries, Lennard Gettz has produced countless partner-based projects, joint ventures and strategic alliances with community groups and medical innovators across the US. He holds credentials in education and communications with a track record for bringing recognition to like-minded trailblazers under a collective vision for making a larger difference.

His formative years were dedicated to the formal study of the game of CHESS - where strategy, visual projection and probabilities are the core disciplines that continue to define his brand of professional leadership. As a former college educator in communications, Lennard's academic training comprised the crafting of "lesson plans" which also aligned to his current proposal drafts and campaign designs. Structuring a road map for the "right approach" is a specialized science that is backed with passion for sound research, assembling the right team and producing targeted collateral. To date, all of Lennard's clients, partners and colleagues rely on him for his sense of follow-through and a level of uncompromising structure.

 

THE 9/11 CROSSROADS
From the ashes of 9/11 came redefining influences for so many including Lennard who chose to forge a major career upgrade toward community impact. Experiences as a volunteer responder added great reference (and inspiration) to supporting the cancer care and first responder communities through advocacy and safety education. He formed 9/11 CancerScan with retired fire service and cancer care professionals to support public awareness about cancer and to support ALL responders and victims of occupational exposures. He furthered this effort by getting clinicians involved to offer prevention and early detection initiatives under his "GET CHECKED NOW!" project. Over the years, Lennard became a massive conduit for caregivers and a trusted support system, serving patients, survivors and organizations with special resources, technical updates and nextgen empowerment.

As a professional publisher, Lennard pursued some of the most intriguing minds and innovators in areas of medicine, science and wellness. He forged collaborative partnerships to aid in building new innovations and improved solutions. His talents as a researcher/matchmaker of caregivers provided great advantage espeially to those with "out of the box" solutions and what he calls "the 2.0 project" for all difference-makers.

CRUSADERS WITH A COMMON CAUSE
His earliest network was The NY Caregivers Group with the tagline "...only together can we truly grow!". He maintains that philosophy today by continuing to seek out and unite experts, educators and advocates under the INTEGRATIVE CANCER RESOURCE ALLIANCE (launched in 2021). ICRA is an independent self-funded volunteer group of non-profit foundations/charities, researchers, educators, community leaders and survivors collaborating to bring new support for cancer patients and survivors. Navigated by the covid pandemic, the latest 'grand plan' of ICRA is to architect what he calls the 'BORDERLESS MEDICINE Coalition'- connecting over 15,000 professionals in critical care and cancer research within and outside the U.S.

Current achievements where Lennard's resources and technical efforts helped support their success included: F.A.C.E.S. (Firefighters Against Cancer & Exposures), The Movember Foundation, The AngioFoundation, FLCCC (Front Line Covid Care Alliance), the Male Breast Cancer Coalition and the more recent research and development campaign for The "ARE YOU DENSE?" Advocacy Foundation.
