Graziadio School of Business and Management Hosts 2017 Future of Healthcare Symposium
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
The Future of Healthcare Symposium, hosted annually by the Graziadio School and held at the Marina del Rey Marriott on March 23, explores how advancements in policy and technology can reshape and improve healthcare. Each year experts and professionals converge to expand the healthcare discussion with shared insights, experiences, and ideas.
Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the leading practitioners shaping the future of healthcare, presented the keynote address. With a long record of experience at the top levels of policy, and trained as both an oncologist and a political scientist, he provided a uniquely thoughtful perspective on the most difficult issues in medicine today.
Other guests tackled topics such as “Transforming the American Health System Towards Value-Based Care,” which focused on patient health improvement and efficiency, and “Advances in Telemedicine for the 21st Century,” which examined the opportunities and challenges embedded in new and emerging medical technology.
