About the Event

About half of Americans get their health insurance through their employer, or a family member’s employer. But the cost is high—and the quality uneven. Employers have a lot of power in the health care market. How can they wield it to improve the value of health care services delivered to their employees and families? This event, kicking off the 2022-‘23 series for the Hopkins Business of Health Initiative, will look at opportunities and challenges now, and in the years ahead.


Dan Mendelson is the Chief Executive Officer of Morgan Health at JPMorgan Chase & Co.  He oversees a business unit at JPMorgan Chase focused on accelerating the delivery of new care models that improve the quality, equity, and affordability of employer-sponsored healthcare. He was previously Founder and CEO of Avalere Health, a healthcare advisory company based in Washington DC. He also served as Operating Partner at Welsh Carson, a private equity firm. Before founding Avalere, Mendelson served as associate director for Health at the Office of Management and Budget in the Clinton White House. He currently serves on the boards of Vera Whole Health and Champions Oncology (CSBR). He is also an adjunct professor at the Georgetown University McDonough School of 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 12 to 1 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
