Deep Dive Into Health Care Delivery at International Forum

Posted on Thu, March 27, 2014 by Carole Gaudet.

Four second-year students, together with Tuck faculty and staff, have returned from a week at Keio University Business School in Yokohama, Japan. The group attended the Council on Business & Society’s annual forum.

The Council is a global alliance of business schools recognizing the enormous role that business can play in helping solve large-scale problems. Each year, the Council holds a conference exploring a different theme. This year’s forum addressed the challenges of health and healthcare.

At Keiro, Tuck’s Council Fellows Alexis Kheir, Vivien Lee, Erin McInerney and Maggie Mistzal listened to faculty presentations and informally shared their own findings with students from 5 leading business schools. They, together with Tuck Professor of Business Punam Keller, blogged about their reactions to the challenges of health care delivery effectiveness around the world.
