Center Director Receives MARRCH 2020 Award of Excellence for Program Innovation

November 3, 2020

The MARRCH Awards of Excellence recognizes individuals and organizations working to build and strengthen the Minnesota behavioral health continuum of care, enhance access to treatment, and support our communities through leadership and education.

Julie Rohovit, PhD, Executive Director & Director of Training for the Center for Practice Transformation, has been awarded the 2020 MARRCH Award of Excellence for Program Innovation, which is the first time MARRCH has awarded innovators in such a way, for her visionary contributions to our workforce and our field as a whole. The MARRCH Board specifically identified her development of the University of Minnesota’s Integrated Behavioral Health Master’s program, her leadership in integrated training, her mentorship of emerging and well-established clinicians, and her leadership at the Center for Practice Transformation.

Dr. Rohovit accepted the award virtually at the MAARCH Annual Conference and acknowledged those who have also been innovators and helped advance the education, training, and practice of behavioral health professionals.

“While our work can sometimes feel like a solitary endeavor, none of us innovates in isolation or in a vacuum. We are all here because someone believed in us, supported us, held our hope for us when we felt depleted, and encouraged us when we felt discouraged. I have been very fortunate to have many ‘someones’.”
