Grandon Society

Overview

Named for our friend, benefactor and champion, Raymond C. Grandon, MD and his wife, Doris, the Grandon Society is the Jefferson College of Population Health’s (JCPH) membership organization for leaders throughout the healthcare sector – including government, foundations and professional societies, academia, related business and corporate interests – and the pharmaceutical and biotech industries – who are dedicated to transforming the U.S. healthcare system through collaboration, education and innovation.

The Society provides opportunities to:

  • Engage in substantive interactive dialogue and debate of critical issues
  • Showcase and share best practices
  • Develop collaborative regional partnerships designed to create, test and evaluate innovative paradigms

Members of the Grandon Society have opportunities to participate in exclusive programs and events throughout the year, receive a special member e-newsletter and receive early notice and special registration rates to JCPH conferences and events.

Our goal is to continue to provide colleagues with high-quality programming and communications that are timely and afford opportunities for collaboration and networking with other health care professionals, industry leaders and policy makers.
