About the Kovner-Behrman Health Forum

Established by NYU Wagner Professor Tony 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.

Presented in partnership with the New York State Health Foundation
