Care Share Health Alliance has selected Weyling White as its next Executive Director. White will succeed Linda Kinney, who will remain at Care Share as Director of Innovation and Capacity Building.
“We are fortunate to have Weyling lead Care Share,” said Alice Pollard, Board Chair. “Weyling brings tremendous leadership experience with programs that promote systems change to increase access to health care. His experience and passion for health equity and social justice will be a guiding light for advancing Care Share’s vision of communities that are healthy & committed to health equity for all.”
“It is such an honor to be joining Care Share Health Alliance. Throughout my career I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate and work with Care Share in multiple capacities. I have always admired this organization and I look forward to our new journey together,” said White.
White most recently worked with Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center (RHCC) as the Practice Administrator. He joined RCCHC in 2013 as the Director of Hertford Health Access, a collaborative network that was supported by Care Share. Weyling is a native of Ahoskie, North Carolina, and in 2019, made history when he was elected as Ahoskie’s first African American Mayor. Weyling is a graduate of the Rural Economic Development Institute with the NC Rural Center, a Leadership North Carolina Class XXVI graduate, and a current Bernstein Health Leadership Fellow.
Weyling was selected following a thorough search process which resulted in a field of exceptional candidates. The Board launched the search process in 2020 after Linda Kinney expressed her desire for Care Share to be an inclusive, diverse and equitable organization. Kinney, who has been a part of Care Share’s team from its inception and served as Executive Director since 2017, will continue to serve Care Share as Director of Director of Innovation and Capacity Building.
“I have been honored to serve as executive director of Care Share Health Alliance and remain committed to our mission of Collaborating for Health Equity. I take our mission seriously and decided to step down from the executive director position so we can better align our leadership with our mission. I am not leaving Care Share, rather I am acknowledging and acting on systemic privilege where I can. This decision embodies my personal and Care Share’s organizational values to open opportunities for new leadership” said Kinney. “I am delighted to work with Weyling and the rest of the Care Share staff.”
“The Board is grateful for Linda’s continued service to Care Share and excited about what the Care Share team will achieve in the coming months under Weyling’s leadership. Care Share stands at the ready to support organizations, communities, and all stakeholders in advancing health equity,” said Pollard.
