Westminster and the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy present a lecture by Amy Lockwood, “Entrepreneurship in Global Health: Opportunities and Challenges” as part of the Ambassador John Price and Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series.
Access to quality health care remains elusive in many resource-constrained regions of the world. In response, a remarkable number of promising products and services have been introduced to address the issues of global health. However, many of these efforts often falter—or even fail—because entrepreneurs underestimate the array of obstacles that loom in their path. Amy will examine the opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurship in global health by discussing successes and failures and identifying key lessons and best practices. Amy Lockwood is the Chief of Staff at University of California, San Francisco’s Global Health Sciences. She was the Deputy Director of the Center for Innovation in Global Health at Stanford; the Executive Director of Project Healthy Children; and the Director of the Pediatric HIV/AIDS Program and India Deputy Country Director for the Clinton Foundation. Amy holds a B.S. and M.S. in Communications from Northwestern University and an MBA from Stanford.
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, visit http://utahdiplomacy.org.
