Humana CEO Mike McCallister to visit JSPH on 5/12/11
The Jefferson School of Population Health plays host to a very special guest this Thursday when Humana CEO Mike McCallister visits campus to speak at the 20th Annual Dr. Raymond C. Grandon Lecture.
During Mike’s tenure as CEO, Humana has gained a reputation as the industry’s leading consumer company, leveraging innovative products, processes and technology to better serve more than 10 million health plan members nationwide.
As befits an industry leader, Humana is well positioned to be responsive to the changing demands in this era of health reform as they transform their offerings to focus on prevention and wellness. The company has already begun implementing pilot programs in accountable care; I’m looking forward to hearing some of Mike’s insights on how ACOs will move from the conceptual phase to real-world application.
Moreover, Mike has personally met with President Obama to discuss health reform. It’s an honor to host someone who has the President’s ear on this key topic and we here at JSPH are thrilled and looking forward to Thursday. Hope to see you there!
The 20th Annual Dr. Raymond C. Grandon Lecture, “A Roadmap to Creating a Real Health Care System,” is scheduled for noon to 2 pm Thursday, May 12 in Connelly Auditorium in the Dorrance H. Hamilton Building, 1001 Locust Street, Philadelphia.
