What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

I love the diversity of students that attend Loyola; they bring such great ideas and perspectives on healthcare.

Why is this area of study important at this point in time?

Marketing is a part of everyone's life everyday. How we communicate and structure the message for maximum impact is critical in influencing change. There is such continual change in the U.S. healthcare system, so how we position the value of our organizations can strengthen outcomes.
