“At Thomas Jefferson University we’re building  an Institute of Emerging Health Professions, from forensics to habit change to ‘trusted health advisors.’ I predict Emerging Health Professions will soon be a major college and a driver of the health science universities of the future. The bottom line is this: the future of health belongs to patients ‘owning’ their own health, at home, in their neighborhoods and in their communities.” - Stephen Klasko, President & CEO - Thomas Jefferson University; CEO, Jefferson Health
