This webinar will focus on the ways that CMOs are working to influence the health of organizations and their stakeholders (including not only employees, but customers and broader social stakeholders). We hope to look at new, innovative solutions CMOs are using to address health in business (beyond traditional occupational safety or wellness programs), to understand the cutting-edge ways that health is being brought into business.

Conversations on the Business of Health Webinar Series

This event is part of a larger series on 'Conversations on the Business of Health,' which will be one-hour webinars that will engage leaders in business and academia. We will explore questions such as: Should companies invest in their employees’ health?  Are companies responsible for the health consequences of their products? Will artificial intelligence actually advance health? How can business offer healthcare in novel settings?

Moderated by faculty members and jointly hosted by the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Carey Business School, the School of Nursing, and the School of Medicine, the series is open to all.  Indeed, we invite you to spread the word as we seek participants both inside and outside of Johns Hopkins, including the business world.

Seminars will be on a Friday from noon to 1 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
