Expanding Our Understanding of Health Care: Our Conversation with Dean Christopher King Blog Post
by Arjun Narayan (H'25)
On April 4, 2023 Georgetown University’s Conversations in Health: Global to Local class welcomed Dr. Christopher King, dean of Georgetown’s School of Health, as the course’s final speaker to discuss his storied career in advancing innovative and equitable approaches in the health care and education spaces. As we participated in Dean King’s interactive discussion, I gained an appreciation for how education can be a guiding light in a rapidly changing health care space. Dean King’s journey to becoming the inaugural leader of Georgetown’s School of Health illustrates the importance of hard work and embracing change in the health care system, and how we can begin to redefine our traditional understanding of health care to truly help the millions who have been left underserved by the current system.
