Meet our new President, Lois Green, M.H.S.A.

Born and raised in a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania, Lois Green had a passion for healthcare and education from an early age. In fact, her first job while in high school was doing front office and admissions work at her local hospital. Lois then headed to the University of Pittsburgh with an eye on teaching world cultures; she left as a Phi Beta Kappa graduate who found that medical anthropology offered a unique opportunity to bring healthcare and education together.

Born and raised in a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania, Lois Green had a passion for healthcare and education from an early age. In fact, her first job while in high school was doing front office and admissions work at her local hospital. Lois then headed to the University of Pittsburgh with an eye on teaching world cultures; she left as a Phi Beta Kappa graduate who found that medical anthropology offered a unique opportunity to bring healthcare and education together. After working in a consumer-focused health planning organization, Lois decided to return to graduate school and earned a Master of Health Services Administration degree from the University of Michigan. Her career path led her to a senior directorship at the Hospital Association of Pennsylvania and, in the mid-1980’s, a move to California to join one of the first multi-hospital systems in the country. As a corporate vice president, she was involved in strategic planning, management research, and program development, as well as the system’s merger to become UniHealth, a leading organization at the time. Next, Lois took an executive leadership position at the Motion Picture & Television Fund, a health system serving the entertainment industry.

While she progressed her healthcare career, education remained woven into her Lois’ path. Shortly after arriving in LA, she began teaching strategic planning and marketing as a UCLA School of Public Health adjunct. She crossed town in 2000 to work at USC’s Price School of Public Policy as a consultant, affiliated researcher, administrator and clinical professor. At USC she gained extensive educational leadership experience in the School’s health policy and management degree programs, student and faculty affairs, curriculum development, and expansion of both alumni and professional community engagement. While working with USC, Lois also spearheaded the creation and successful launch of the Executive Master of Health Administration degree program.  As a healthcare consultant and researcher, she’s earned significant competitive grant funding, published, and will maintain a USC research affiliation.  She has also taught at UC, Irvine and UC, San Francisco. 

What led Lois to Yo San University?  She is a long-standing advocate for the integration of Western and Traditional Chinese medicines, stimulated perhaps by her early love of medical anthropology and reflected throughout her entwined healthcare and educational career.  With growing acceptance of TCM and the nation’s move towards more truly integrated health, Lois sees Yo San University as a “hidden jewel.”  “We are strong educationally, rich in tradition, and poised for the future,” she says. “Yo San University deserves to shine more brightly and inspire others, not only in the greater Los Angeles area, but throughout California and even nationwide.  It would be a privilege to help guide the University to even greater heights.”

On a more personal level, Lois is an avid traveler and reader who enjoys gardening, great food, and her friends and family.  She has been married to Don Lee, L. Ac. for 14 years and together, they have five fur children.
