Weber State University’s Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions (DCHP) will host Dr. Marc Harrison, Intermountain Healthcare CEO, for a lecture Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. in the Shepherd Union Ballrooms.
Harrison’s efforts include projects to make healthcare more effective, accessible and affordable, as well as collaborations with community partners to address social and economic factors that can adversely affect people’s health.
“The Dumke College of Health Professions stays connected with our healthcare partners to give the best education to our students,” said Yasmen Simonian, dean of the Dumke College. “As part of our DCHP Lecture Series, we invite prominent leaders in our community to address our students, faculty and staff on the current issues related to healthcare and the community we serve.”
