Ned Rosch Leaves Northwest Osteopathic Medical Foundation
July 5, 2012 – Ned Rosch is stepping down as executive director of the Northwest Osteopathic Medical Foundation on September 1, a position he’s held for the past five years.
He’ll be succeeded by David Tate, who grew up in Oregon and now works in New York City for the Boy Scouts of America in leadership and fund-raising development.
“I’m leaving to take on some new challenges and experiences and feel like I’ve accomplished some good things at this foundation which is now in very good shape, financially, programmatically and ready for new and different challenges.”
During his time at the foundation, Rosch has provided scholarships to osteopathic medical students committed to practice medicine in the Pacific Northwest, supported the state osteopathic societies in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho and Alaska, and held events such as the Founders’ Evening which celebrates and honors distinguished accomplishments by community leaders.
Under his leadership, the foundation’s endowment has grown to $6 million which supports the scholarship program and the state associations. “We’ve become a far more efficient and economical organization.” Rosch said.
Currently there are three new osteopathic medical schools in the Pacific Northwest.
After leaving the foundation, Rosch intends to do consulting, work for several peace and justice organizations and teach yoga.
