Moderating a panel where you know all the players is fun! I got this opportunity on October 25th when two Columbia Business School programs - Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Management Program (HPM) and the Lang Center - teamed up to organize a breakfast discussion on Healthcare Entrepreneurship in NYC. Held atop the Bank of America building in midtown, we could not have asked for a more beautiful or breathtaking view.

Our panelists were: Bob Hopkins, CBS '95, managing director in Bank of America Equity Research covering US Medical Technology, whom I've known since my interventional cardiology days; my friend Dr. Joe Habboushe, CBS ’07, who practices emergency medicine at NYU and runs several companies including MDCalc and Vitalis Pharmaceuticals; and HPM's Faculty Director Professor Linda Green.
