Key Insights:

This episode is part of our Excellence in Leadership Series, presented by Citi. Carladenise Edwards, Ph.D. is a healthcare strategy expert.


  • Mission Creep. Health systems try to be all things to all people all the time. Health systems need to refocus on their goals in the community and do a few things exceptionally well, rather than many things inadequately.
  • Public Health Infrastructure. We need to invest in public health, rather than expect health systems to manage it. Public Healthinfrastructure will enable more people to get the fundamental care they need to be healthy and secure.
  • Hard Work. Work is not easy. It is hard and takes energy, but if you’re pushing uphill that means you are producing something of value.Nothing is insurmountable if we collectively work towards change.
