Prominent author and Harvard professor Regina Herzlinger to speak to students
NEW YORK— on February 27, 2008, The Policy Center at The King’s College will welcome Harvard Business School Professor Regina Herzlinger to speak to students. Herzlinger’s speech will answer the questions, “what’s wrong with healthcare today?” and “how do we fix things?”
Herzlinger is the Nancy R. McPherson Professor of Business Administration Chair at the Harvard Business School, and was the first woman to receive tenure and a chaired position there. She is also a Manhattan Institute Center for Medical Progress Senior Fellow.
A prominent voice regarding healthcare, Herzlinger is the author of the newly published book, Who Killed Healthcare: Americas $2 Trillion Problem—and the Consumer-Driven Cure. The book has been praised by many, including Former Jersey City, NJ mayor and King’s College professor, Bret Schundler, who says, “I believe that healthcare will be the big domestic policy issue in the 2008 election for President, and that Professor Herzlinger’s ideas will be a major focus of the debate.”
Herzlinger is also the author of several other books, including Consumer-Driven Healthcare, Market-Driven Healthcare, and Financial Accounting and Managerial Control of Nonprofit Organizations.
The Policy Center at The King’s College is run by former Jersey City, NJ mayor Bret Schundler. Each semester, Schundler leads a select group of students in the in-depth study of key public policy issues like health care, climate change, and education. Their efforts culminate in the publication of opinion editorials and podcasts related to their particular area of study.
