Stryker Chair & CEO Kevin Lobo Keynotes the Ralph J. Gerson Distinguished Lecture
The possibility and interest in serving these markets and helping to make healthcare better creates opportunities for job seekers, companies and healthcare professionals. However, organizations face significant challenges in developing business models that can provide quality products and services and do so profitably. As more companies are successful, the local communities and patients will continue to benefit.
The keynote speaker for WDI’s Ralph J. Gerson Distinguished Lecture, Kevin Lobo, Chair and CEO of Stryker, provided perspective and insights for innovating and driving growth in LMICs. With globalization as part of the company’s strategy, Lobo has continued to focus resources and talent on key global markets since becoming CEO of Stryker in 2012. Lobo’s talk focused on “Challenges and Opportunities for Healthcare Companies in Emerging Markets.”
