Our event featured remarks by Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels, J.D., LL.M. and Johns Hopkins Medicine Dean & CEO Paul B. Rothman, M.D. 

“We certainly don’t have all the answers. But until you ask the questions, you can’t have the answers. And we’re asking the questions,” Rothman said. “These systemic problems require systemic solutions.”
