Event Description:

Guest speaker: John Brooks

John is President/CEO of Joslin Diabetes Center.  When he took over this financially troubled institution, he moved the mission from a Boston based Harvard Teaching Hospital that studies diabetes and sees patients to an educational institution with the mission of “curing” diabetes everywhere in the world.  Under John’s leadership, Joslin has formed Joslin Everywhere and created a special room called the Collaboritorium.  John is re-birthing a legendary Boston institution.

He did not become a nonprofit hospital CEO the regular way.

Educated as an accountant John began his career in traditional ways at Arthur Andersen.  After a career in Pfizer that got him P&L experience he co-founded three life sciences companies and then co-founded Prism Ventures, one of the world’s leading venture capital firms focusing on life sciences.

John is a member of the Board of Trustees of Suffolk University.
