Health care is very complex and it certainly needs to be reformed, but how do we do it? Interested in systems thinking? Then you may wish to consider this upcoming event:
MIT Conference on Systems Thinking for Contemporary Challenges
Addressing Complexity in Health Care, Energy, Space, and the Environment

Sponsored by the MIT System Design and Management Program, John Deere, MITRE, UTC, and BAE Systems.
Register now to join MIT faculty and industry leaders who will discuss best practices for applying systems thinking to some of the most complex challenges facing today's world.

I really wish I could be there, but I'm already doing too much traveling in October, so I can't be there. I sure miss Boston and I'm dying to see my new nephew!
