Fulfilling Your Organization's Mission When COVID-19 Interferes Kurt Roberts, Austin Smiles/Cornerstone Hospital Imagine being on vacation when a global health pandemic breaks out. Now imagine you are the CEO of a highly specialized long-term in-patient hospital for patients who need to be in the intensive care unit for weeks or months. Next, imagine you are also the President of the Board for a non-profit organization that has a surgical medical mission planned in the next few months. Besides panicking, learn how Kurt Roberts, Market Chief Executive Officer of Cornerstone Hospitals of Austin and Round Rock and President of the Board of Austin Smiles, was able to plan, pivot and persevere to fulfill BOTH organizations' missions even when COVID-19 was reshaping our world. Crisis management techniques, the mishaps and the wins will all be explored as Mr. Roberts joins Dr. Glendene Lemard-Marlow, Director of Concordia's New Master of Public Health Program and Associate Professor of Global Health in a stimulating conversation on lessons learned, best practices and more.
