The Tobago Regional Health Authority (TRHA) has announced the appointment of Michelle Edwards-Benjamin as Acting Chief Executive Officer, with immediate effect.
Edwards-Benjamin has worked with the TRHA since 1995, moving through the ranks of Nursing to hold the substantive position of Secondary Care Nurse Manager.
She holds a B.Sc. Management Studies from the University of the West Indies (UWI) and a Master of Health Administration from the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT).
The TRHA says the appointment of Edwards-Benjamin by the Board of Directors is an interim measure as the Authority continues to be engaged in the recruitment process for the selection and appointment of a Chief Executive Officer.
The Board of Directors has thanked Gillian Pollidore for her stewardship during the period 20th August, 2018 to 19th November, 2018.
