Save the Date for this year's Campaign for Quality October x-x, 2015

A new perspective on today's ever changing healthcare system.

Campaign For Quality is pleased to welcome David Nash, MD, MBA, as the conference keynote speaker. Dr. Nash was named the founding dean of the Je­fferson School of Population Health in 2008. He is a board certified internist who is internationally recognized for his work in outcomes management, medical sta­ff development and quality-of-care improvement. In his presentation, Dr. Nash will review the history of the failure of our healthcare system, explore the tenets of population health and connect population health to health reform.
