I wanted to write to the HBS graduating class of 2002 to wish each of you the very best as you re-enter the business world. My staff and I at the Harvard Business School Health Service have enjoyed getting to know you over the past two years and are very proud of your achievements.
Whether we have seen you for minor illness or injury, major medical problems, stress management, maintenance of mental health, or routine health care, it has been a great pleasure to take care of you.
When I first came here as HBS Medical Director in September 2001, I knew that there was much work to do to improve our HBS health care delivery system. I want to give special recognition to Dean Kim Clark, Pat Light, the HBS Healthservices Committee, the HBS Student Senate and Nick Will, Editor of The Harbus, for the help they have provided to achieve improvements and support new initiatives.
We all have worked collaboratively with Dr. David Rosenthal, Medical Director at UHS, and his fine clinical and administrative staff for a common purpose. I am pleased that this year our team has been able to improve access to HBS primary and UHS specialty care services, provide a Monday Morning Urgent Care Walk- In Clinic, perform on-site phlebotomy for blood tests, promote health and illness management at HBS through Harbus articles, communicate to you via the HBS Intranet, and obtain a full-time triage nurse for HBS. More improvements are on the way.
So, from all of us at HBS Health Services, we wish you good luck, great success and continued good health and happiness. Congratulations!
Bruce J. Biller, MD
Medical Director, HBS Health Services
