Join us for a lively discussion of temptations, trends and tribulations of the international arena for health sector leadership development. Jim Rice and John Cushing will contribute ideas, issues and insights to a strategic conversation about the need for, and nature of engagement in the health sectors of low- and middle-income countries.

As alumni and adjunct faculty of the School Public Health, Rice (PhD ’91, MHA ’71) and Cushing (MHA ’67) are aware of the many international educational initiatives and options being explored across the Academic Health Center for the coming decade. Their diverse experiences will examine:

  • Changes to health services delivery in under-resourced countries.
  • The need for leadership, management and governance development.
  • The roles, risks and rewards of a University and School of Public Health response.
