Tim Gibbs is the Executive Director of the Delaware Academy of Medicine/Delaware Public Health Association. He has worked tirelessly to improve several healthcare initiatives through the non-profit sector. His Quaker background has inspired his passion to help the underserved.
In the late 80s, he led a groundbreaking project and managed the founding of Delaware’s first transitional housing and hospice care facility for people with HIV/AIDS. Upon the project’s completion, Tim coupled his passion for human services with his technology skills, and became the Executive Director of Catalyst Project, an organization focused on helping non-profits effectively use technology. While working at Catalyst Project, he collaborated with the University of Delaware and helped established Delaware’s first network for non-profits, Diamondnet, as well as the first online version of the Delaware Helpline database (now called Delaware 211). In his current role at the Delaware Academy of Medicine, Tim oversaw the organization’s move from Wilmington to Newark, and has worked to restructure their program and mission. These efforts led to the Delaware Academy of Medicine being named as Delaware’s affiliate to the American Public Health Association in 2013.
Tim is an active volunteer and is a Board Member for the American Society of Hypertension (Delaware Valley Chapter), Immunization Coalition of Delaware, Delaware Stroke Initiative, and the Delaware Community Foundation Development Team. He is also involved with The American College of Healthcare Executives, American Public Health Association, American Planning Association, and the National Academy of Medicine. Tim served on the WFS Alumni Board for five years.
