Emerging Leaders alumni will share their perspectives and personal leadership journeys on “unconventional” career paths in health. In the health industry there are many directions your career journey can take from entrepreneurship to politics, law, or technology. Explore different possibilities and opportunities during this interactive panel discussion and networking session with Chris Zhou (ELP 2017), Salma Chaudhry (ELP 2018) and Kobi Amponsah (ELP 2019).
