Northeastern University-Charlotte recently served as the Academic Partner for the Charlotte Business Journal’s annual Excellence in Healthcare Awards program. The Charlotte staff leveraged broad university expertise by engaging students studying disciplines from Law to Pharmacy and Nursing to Public Health through our School of Law and Bouve College of Health Sciences in Boston. These student judges reviewed over 160 submissions for 10 award categories including Advancements in Healthcare, Innovations in Healthcare, Education in Healthcare, Nurse and Physician of the Year, Community Advocate and more. Additionally, the campus was able to place senior fellow, Dr. Eric Kupferberg of the Master of Science in Regulatory Affairs for Drugs, Biologics and Medical Devices on a panel with senior healthcare leaders including the COO and Executive VP for Solstas Lab Partners and President of Novant Health. The event highlighted discussion on the Affordable Care Act and honored both organizational and individual excellence in the region’s healthcare industry while providing a platform to promote Northeastern’s new degree programs and research expertise in this field.
