Jeffrey Brenner, MD, 2013 MacArthur Fellow, Speaks at Penn Foundation

PF Leadership TeamOn October 21, Penn Foundation was pleased to welcome Jeffrey Brenner, MD, 2013 MacArthur Fellow and Founder/Executive Director of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, as part of the Dr. Michael A. Peters Lectures Series.

Dr. Brenner gave a timely and informative presentation in which he talked about his innovative healthcare work in Camden, New Jersey. Dr. Brenner created a comprehensive
model of healthcare delivery that has proven to lower healthcare costs, integrate care, and improve access. He is currently working with 14 communities across the country, including Allentown, to develop sustainable and accountable care systems based on the Camden model.

"Penn Foundation is a good example of strong leadership. For 60 years, it has been a frontrunner in identifying the most vulnerable citizens and standing up to help them," says Dr. Brenner. "Because of Penn Foundation, this community has an extraordinary opportunity to make the systems change that is necessary and that community residents deserve."

The Michael A. Peters Lecture Series is a community-based educational program that brings national experts on behavioral health to Penn Foundation. The series is named for Grand View Hospital's Chief of Medicine (1947-1972), who was instrumental to the founding of Penn Foundation in 1955.
