The Affinity Group and Communities team has started working with a small group of Hopkins alumni who work in Healthcare. We would like to continue to build a JHU Health Care Affinity Group.
If you or someone you know in the greater Hopkins community, are interested in participating in some way, have ideas to share, or would like more information about this or other groups please send a note, We'd be thrilled to hear from you!

JHU Healthcare Affinity Group Launch Event: "If It’s Broken, Fix It: Innovation in Healthcare Delivery Systems”

The American healthcare system is full of complexity, and in 2014 with all the advances made over the years, there are still many challenges that need smart solutions.

Ultimately, the goal is threefold: to provide low-cost high-quality care; to ensure greater patient access and to improve patient outcomes. The question is how do we actually achieve these goals? Join a discussion with other Hopkins alumni and friends—hear from our expert panelists about how they’ve been able to collaborate and innovate to make positive changes to healthcare delivery using technology, cutting-edge strategies and groundbreaking tools.
