Ethical Challenges in Healthcare Leadership

October 13, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Please join us our October 13th virtual Brain Food event, Ethical Challenges in Healthcare Leadership, with CHRISTUS CMO Mark Anderson, MD.

Ethical challenges arise in all aspects of healthcare and service, from the bedside to the boardroom. Understanding the expanding paradigm of planning, creating, and maintaining an ethical healthcare organization is crucial to help identify strategies for implementing ethics initiatives within your own organization and how an organization has addressed ethical challenges. Healthcare leaders must “walk the talk” and demonstrate their commitment to ethics throughout their organization.

Dr. Mark Anderson holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona. His background includes completing his residency in Emergency Medicine, serving as Chief Resident in Columbia, South Carolina followed by 3 years as Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver, Colorado.
