We are pleased to welcome Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, to our 2019 program. Dr. Gawande is a surgeon, writer, and public health leader. For more than two decades, Dr. Gawande has straddled the intersection of direct patient care and population-impact, asking a fundamental question: How do we fix health care systems to deliver better care for every person everywhere? In 2018, Dr. Gawande was named Chief Executive Officer of Haven, the non-profit health care venture formed by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan Chase to deliver better outcomes, satisfaction, and cost efficiency in care.
