Compassion Conversations

Schwartz Center CEO Matt Herndon kicked off the inaugural event of our new series, Compassion Conversations, where we’ll learn more about the role of compassion in leadership and organizational culture from healthcare and other leaders. Our first program featured a conversation with Rushika Fernandopulle, MD, MPP, CEO and co-founder of Iora Health. Iora Health is an innovative primary care provider organization focused on restoring the humanity in healthcare. Rushika discussed Iora Health’s care model and how its values, including compassion, guide his leadership, the organization’s culture, his team’s approach to challenges, including COVID-19, and how he expects healthcare to change post-pandemic.
