Hewitt Health Care Lecture

We held the 2016 Hewitt Healthcare Lecture, Facing Down the Opioid Crisisin April. Our keynote speaker was Marylou Sudders, Secretary of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, a key leader in the Baker administration’s efforts to reduce the rate of opioid addiction in the Commonwealth. Her address was followed by a panel discussion featuring experts in behavioral health, medicine, and criminal justice.

In 2006, Pioneer Institute launched an effort to endow a healthcare research and lecture program in memory of its former chairman, “Colby” Hewitt. To donate to the Hewitt Endowment, click here. Review prior years’ lecture topics and speakers below.
