In this discussion-based and interactive meeting, you will learn about 25 years of quality management with a focus on healthcare quality from a Swedish perspective.

Schreyer gave me a really good resource and community. There’s 300 people in the exact same position I was in. It’s made Penn State a lot smaller and a lot more manageable.
