Any insights gained while you were a Fellow?

The Healthcare Fellows program introduced me to a whole new world of leading edge healthcare research being performed here in the greater Louisville area.  Each month the Fellows were very fortunate to be able to spend time with a healthcare subject matter expert in their field as well as network with others like-minded professionals.

There is some remarkable research and fascinating healthcare business taking place in Louisville.
