Talking population health with Dr David Nash of the Jefferson College of Population Health

As part of this blog, Sutherland Healthcare is conducting a series of interviews with industry thought leaders. We’re starting this series with a conversation with Dr. David Nash, Dean of the Jefferson College of Population Health at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.

Dr. Nash received his MD from the University of Rochester, followed by an MBA at University of Pennsylvania's Wharton College where he was also a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholar.

He was headhunted in 2008 to become the founding Dean of the Jefferson College of Population Health which provides graduate academic programming in population health, public health, health policy, healthcare quality and safety, and health outcomes research.

Dr. Nash spoke with Tim Exton by phone from his office in the City of Brotherly Love, a very appropriate location for someone concerned with population health!
