Join Grandon Society for 'Brown Bag' Lunch with Dean

Amanda Solis
JSPH Project Director

When you join the ranks of JSPH, you quickly learn the unintended consequences of working in an office full of faculty and staff members who are passionate about wellness, health policy, and population health. Most days, this results in a fascinating dialogue on the current state of events. On the other hand, it also forces you to be mindful of your own habits and diet.

Working at JSPH also presents opportunities to interact with thought leaders in population health and outcomes research. Naturally, we regularly have face-to-face time with Dr. Nash at brown bag lunch discussions…and I will always remember how we all sat in our conference room to await the Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act. You also never know who is going to show up in the conference room – be it the CEO of Humana or Jeffrey Brenner (who most likely rode his bike here to discuss his latest work in Camden).

In an effort to share this sense of community with each of you, we developed the Grandon Society. Read more about this 100+ member group here, where the rates and benefits are more formally outlined. Ultimately, our goal is to invite you into our office culture and have you join our “water cooler” discussions.

To this end, we are hosting our first members-only “Brown Bag” webinar with Dr. Nash. Join us on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 12 pm for a one-hour chat. This unscripted, off-the-cuff session is your chance to hear about his favorite “aha!” moment from the Population Health Colloquium, learn where he traveled that week and who he met with, and witness his unbridled enthusiasm for all things related to population health. Truth be told, we can’t predict what he will say or surprise us with on any given day – and we (gulp) invite you to become part of our team.

Curious? Click here for information on joining the Grandon Society; as a member you will receive invites to discounted programs and be able to join us on April 3rd for a glimpse into Dr. Nash’s candid thoughts on all things population health.
