Thematic Organization: Health Day 2011 will explore the nature of health care locally and nationally through the lens of diabetes (both Type 1 and Type 2). The program is also a wonderful exploration of our core theme of "creating a culture of innovation." The Steering Team has arranged six (6) tours of labs connected to research revolving around diabetes and childhood obesity. Each of you will be assigned to one tour. The tours will be debriefed in large group. Special Invitation At 4:30 PM, CCHMC invites everyone to join the staff of CCHMC for their regularly scheduled discussion, “CCHMC Tipping Point.” The session, which includes beer, wine & cheese, invites discussion among healthcare improvement leaders. The topic on November 10 is “Disruptive Innovation: Can Health Care Learn From Other Industries? A Conversation with Clayton M. Christensen.” The facilitator is Ellis M. Arjmand, MD MMM PhD. Given the variety of perspectives in LC 35, we could not only learn from this discussion, but also enrich it.
