Conference to celebrate Brock’s contributions to health-care quality improvement

Brock’s long-standing commitment to health-care quality improvement will be the focus of an upcoming conference.

Taking place Saturday, March 25 from 1 to 5 p.m. in the University’s Sean O’Sullivan Theatre, the annual Exploring Health Care Quality Improvement Conference will invite undergraduate and graduate students, alumni and community health system partners to learn about new advances in health-system performance.

The focus of this year’s conference is Brock’s Interprofessional Education for Quality Improvement Program (I-EQUIP) and the contributions it has made to the health-care landscape in the past 10 years, as well as the success of current and former participants.

The conference’s keynote address is from Saumik Biswas (BSc ’15), I-EQUIP alumnus and CEO of Tenomix, who will talk about his development of new surgical technologies to improve inefficiencies in the pathology workflow and optimize cancer care, along with his experience running a medical startup company.

Participants will also be invited to take part in poster presentations and a networking session.

Associate Professor of Applied Health Sciences and I-EQUIP Director Madelyn Law says the conference is a time to reflect on the successes of the past while preparing to continue to inspire change in the future.

“Knowing that Brock has had an influence on the next generation of professionals who are working to enhance the health of the population through improving care and programs is truly inspirational,” she said. “It is exciting to hear from our graduates who are now innovators and researchers focused on important health topics.”
