About the Kovner-Behrman Health Forum
Established by NYU Wagner Professor Anthony Kovner in 1996, the annual Kovner-Behrman Health Forum convenes leading health experts for a dialogue about how to improve the healthcare delivery system. With extensive experience as both a health practitioner and academic, Professor Kovner recognized the value of bridging the gap between the two sectors. Each year, experts at the Kovner-Behrman Health Forum debate a different healthcare topic that is relevant to both practitioners and researchers, with the goal of learning from one another and improving overall health outcomes.
