9th US-China Health Summit Held in Boston and Wuhan

The annual U.S.-China Health Summit is dedicated to the advancement of global health by promoting the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experiences of healthcare leaders from the United States, China, and other countries through high level strategic dialogues, leadership development programs, and applied research.

Each year the summit takes place in either China or the United States. Sometimes, like this year, a summit is held in both countries over two different time periods. For the 9th U.S.-China Health Summit that took place at Harvard Medical School in September 2019, ACCESS Health Chair and President William A. Haseltine gave a presentation on using leadership and technology to integrate distributed healthcare systems.

In addition to sharing some of the best healthcare practices he has found around the world, Haseltine explained why the solutions offered his most recent book, World Class: A Story of Adversity, Transformation, and Success at NYU Langone Health, can be applied not just in China, but in any country struggling to provide affordable and high quality care to all.
