April 4, 2017, Washington, DC
Quality Talks 2017 is proud to announce:
Building Health Care’s Future: A Prognosis
Lynn M. Banaszak | Founding Executive Director, Disruptive Health Technology Institute
Ask Lynn M. Banaszak what she does for a living and she’ll tell you that she connects ideas and innovators to create solutions for wicked problems. That description applies as she takes on the role of executive director of the Disruptive Health Technology Institute (DHTI) at Carnegie Mellon University. DHTI aims to transform the affordability, accessibility, quality and simplicity of health care solutions. Is technology her answer for public health? For better diagnoses? For tracking complex patients?
Prior to her work at DHTI, Banaszak was vice president and chief relationship officer at the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse, a biotechnology investment organization. Lynn was recently recognized as one of only 3 Pittsburgh businesswomen on the national American Business Journals ‘Women to Watch’ list – – selected from 1000 women across the country. She was designated One of the Best Personalities of Pittsburgh, was selected as a Pittsburgh Business Times 2016 BusinessWomen First award winner and was the 2015 Athena of Greater Pittsburgh Award Winner.
We look forward to hearing Ms. Banaszak speak at Quality Talks 2017 on October 16 in Washington, DC.
Quality Talks is a series of stirring, succinct talks by current and emerging health care leaders with ideas about how we can collaboratively improve American health care. In addition to the dynamic and thought-provoking speakers, the event features interactive dialogue among all attendees about advancing the health care system and improving patient care. Last year was sold out and we recommend that everyone register early this year.
