Rosenblum Healthcare Institute

New Orleans' only healthcare education series, sponsored by Touro Infirmary Foundation

The Rosenblum Healthcare Institute (RHI) takes place annually and is an engaging five-week series geared towards young professionals interested in discussing the current landscape of health and healthcare. Made possible by Paul & Edie Rosenblum, RHI strives to ensure that quality healthcare remains a priority in the New Orleans community. Both speakers and participants come from diverse professional backgrounds and can expect a robust, interactive experience.

We are excited to announce that in 2020, RHI will focus on health equity and outcomes related to COVID-19 and the response from a hospital, local, national and global level.

While RHI is normally an engaging series of in-person discussions, set to the backdrop of happy hours and networking opportunities, this year, in accordance with health standards set forth by Touro, we will offer an entirely virtual RHI.
