Sweetin, says: "As my co-founder and the CEO for these 2 years, Kevin played an instrumental role in the creation of Urban Global Health Alliance as part of his vision was to create an impactful nonprofit that was focused on real health and wellness inside the community spaces.

Kevin Jenkins, says:"Urban Global Health has a clear, distinctive, successful strategy and stands well equipped for the future. I've decided to move on from UGHA because I believe under my leadership the institution is now properly positioned to transcend into the future. My trust in Susan as UGHA's CEO is deep. Her work over the past 5 years inside of the medical freedom movement has been transformational. I'm deeply grateful for her skills, heart, and soul. It's her time to lead. It is therefore a good time for me to end my operative career in this space to have more time for my newest job as the CEO of FreedomMed.org. I am both honored and proud to have been able to create as well as lead UGHA during what has been such an important time in history.”  The process of recruiting a new COO and CMO has been initiated and the announcements of who will be joining as the leadership team grows are coming soon.

She has been instrumental in tackling our most important priorities, including accelerating our strategy development, and I know she'll hit the ground running to strengthen execution and deliver results. I have the utmost confidence in Sweetin."
