The below announcement was sent out by Anna Tosteson, Interim Director and Professor at The Dartmouth Institute on September 23, 2020.

Dear Colleagues,
Please see the announcement below regarding The Dartmouth Institute’s Microsystem Academy, which has been led by Dr. Marjorie Godfrey since 2009.  Under Margie’s leadership, the Microsystem Academy has helped to advance high-performing health systems via development and dissemination of the original RWJ research on high performing microsystems and developed the team coaching model to support change at the front line of care. Through internationally acclaimed educational programs with rigorous evaluation processes combined with instrument development, Margie has worked in close partnership with several organizations including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to improve care quality and has trained many who are continuing to improve care in diverse settings. In partnership with leaders in Sheffield England, Canada, Ireland, Kosova, Stockholm and Jönköping, Sweden, the efforts to influence health care systems has resulted in an international community adapting and applying microsystem theory and team coaching.  

We thank Margie for her many years of service to TDI and congratulate her on her new leadership role at the University of New Hampshire.
