WELCOME TO THE SPRING 2012 MIT SLOAN ALUMNI MAGAZINE
FIXING HEALTH CARE

What can we do to improve surgery waitlists? How can we better develop drugs and vaccines for the third world? Does health care have to cost so much? Can we develop a fairer way to distribute kidneys?

More than 20 MIT Sloan faculty members are answering these questions and prescribing solutions to one of the world’s largest, most complex problems: health care. In this issue, six of those experts share their work and its impact both close to home and around the world.

A truly multidisciplinary and concerted effort will be at the heart of solving the complicated problems of health care. With a new research center in the works, Professor Retsef Levi believes MIT Sloan will be at the forefront of fixing an ailing system.
