South African entrepreneur, CEO and co-founder of Africa Health Placements, was named 2013 World Fellow by America’s Yale University. The university instituted the program in 2001, as an international training initiative for exceptional professionals.
Kornik is one of 16 fellows selected from over 2,500 applicants to take part in the intense fou-month academic enrichment and leadership-training course.
“The 2013 class joins the extraordinary global network of World Fellows that Yale has been cultivating for more than a decade,” were Yale president Richard Levin’s words when the fellows were announced in early April.
Kornik co-founded AHP – a business that provides healthcare to vulnerable communities in South Africa and other countries on the continent. The company placed more than 2,500 health workers since its inception in 2005 and provides human resources support to the South African government and healthcare sector, which reached out to more than 10-million people every year.
