Michigan Business Women to Host Hospital Executive, Ross Alum
Ross alum Betty Chu (MBA ’13) is the chief medical officer and vice president of medical affairs for Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital, a role that not only requires a deep understanding of the medical field, but strong business fundamentals, well-developed leadership skills, and a few lessons from Mom.
On Nov. 4, Chu will share some of her insight with the Ross community during a conversation with Michigan Business Women.
At the event, which starts at 5 p.m. in the fourth-floor Rackham Amphitheater, Chu will discuss the benefits of being a woman in a male-dominated industry (MBW says that only 19 percent of hospital CEOs are women), and the obstacles she’s encountered on her rise to the C-suite.
“Lessons From My Mother: A Conversation With Ross Alum Dr. Betty Chu” is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
This event is sponsored by the United Asian American Medical Student Association; Michigan Business Women; Females Excelling More in Math, Engineering, and Science; Women in Science and Engineering; and the American Medical Association.
