A Visit to CHOA with the GHA

On March 24th, 2017, I, along with 10 other Goizueta Healthcare Association (GHA) members had the privilege of touring Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) and meeting with executives in the Marketing, Physician Practice Operations, Strategy and Financial Planning departments. CHOA is one of the largest and most prestigious pediatric healthcare systems in the United States, and a true staple of the Atlanta community with 3 hospitals, over 10,000 employees,  622 licensed beds, trauma 1 and 2 centers and over 1,900 physicians.

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: BRETT PATTERSON – SOUTHEAST ASIAN FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH, & DINNER

“How has this experience changed you?” – The prompt for the final paper following our Mid-Semester Module foray around Singapore and Malaysia “I’ve gotten a little fatter…?” – My first thought in regards to the two weeks of Southeast Asian delights I have to admit, as thrilled as I was to explore a new continent and culture and cross some places off my travel bucket list, I was also a little nervous about acclimating to the Southeast Asian diet.  Growing up, my family had a steady rotation between American, Italian, and Mexican food.  I have always been a little...
