Karma Bass returns for the SDAHO Annual Convention. She will be presenting two sessions for the trustee tracks in the morning on Thursday, September 19. Her first session, Effective Board Leadership in a Population Health World, will examine the board’s role as hospitals and health systems focus on keeping populations healthy, while reducing disparities, and improving health equity. Karma will examine what it takes to become a voice for the community within the organization, and conversely, to be a voice for the organization in the community.
Karma’s second session, Focusing Your Board on Strategy, will discuss techniques for focusing board discussion more effectively and talk about the key strategic issues boards are facing in boardrooms across the country. She will discuss how strategic discussions can differ at system boards and subsidiary boards and why they should.
