The Novelline Innovation Speaker Series invites leaders
in healthcare innovation, design-thinking, and care delivery
to share their experiences and lessons learned with members
of the MGH community. Made possible by a generous gift from Bill and Eileen Novelline, this quarterly lecture series provides
a unique opportunity for forward-thinking members of the MGH Community to reflect on their own practices and reinvigorate their passion for making healthcare work better.

The Novelline Innovation Speaker Series invites leaders in healthcare innovation, design-thinking, and care delivery to share their experiences and lessons learned with members of the MGH community.

Our events connect students, thought leaders and frontline staff and allow for sharing of insights from across industries.
