HSDM Leadership Forums

Leadership Forums bring together thought leaders and influencers from academia, health care and business who can advocate for integration and systems change. Forum agendas are packed with speakers, panel discussions, presentations and networking. The 2016 Leadership Forum, themed “Putting Your Money Where Your Mouth is 2.0” looked at integration from all angles — its effect on health in the workplace, in a clinical setting and as a public policy issue.
