Introduction to the Conference

This day-­‐long conference seeks to explore issues regarding the increasing globalization of healthcare, especially between the US and China. It will do so by bringing together influential speakers, experts, and representatives from diverse backgrounds including medicine, public health, biotechnology, venture capitalism, and management. By doing so, we will provide the national collegiate community with an opportunity to examine the health care framework of both countries in various contexts. We will also include opportunities for discussions, debates, and workshops in the hopes of creating a unique experience where both speakers and participants will gain from the free exchange of ideas and the chance to foster the next generation of health care leaders.
