John E. McDonough, Dr. PH, MPA is Professor of Public Health Practice in the Department of Health Policy & Management at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Director of the Center for Executive and Continuing Professional Education. He served as a Senior Advisor on National Health Reform to the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions where he worked on the development and passage of the Affordable Care Act. Dr. McDonough will share with us current developments on National Health Reform.
Ronald Andiman, Cedars-Sinai Hospital, and Bill Cutter will be in dialogue based on the work they have accomplished re: speech, silence and theology, and the role of listening.
