The McKenna Health Policy Lecture Advisory Committee is pleased to announce that Raquel Bono, MD., MBA, FACS and Vice Admiral of the United States Navy Medical Corps (Ret.) will deliver the 2022 McKenna Health Policy Lecture.
In this era of COVID-19, readiness, across all sectors, especially healthcare, is critical. With another pandemic anticipated within the next decade, going back to the “old normal” is not an option. Dr. Bono successfully consolidated the respective military health services under the Defense Health Agency (DHA) and led its readiness work. Anyone involved or interested in healthcare and emergency preparedness, especially involving collaboration by competitive providers of care, will find her remarks informative and fascinating, as Dr. Bono illuminates opportunities for the civilian healthcare system, grounded in the success of the military, for the civilian healthcare sector.
