About this title
For decades, healers, patients and communities have struggled for health-care reform. These three groups represent all of us with a stake in health care. This book explores covenants, agreements coupled with responsibility, achieving peace for these three players, and show us how to work together toward a solution. It illustrates how healing is a gateway to global peace and prosperity.About the Author:
Glenna M. Crooks, Ph.D. is president of Strategic Health Policy International, Inc., and the author of "Covenants: Inspiring the Soul of Healing" and "Creating Covenants: Healing Health Care in the New Millennium."
She organizes the chaos of policy, politics and health care and finds solutions to the seemingly intractable problems we face in achieving better health for all —not just here in the US, but for people around the world. She consults with pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies, trade associations and government—here and abroad.
With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Crooks’ unique perspective is drawn from senior policy and line management positions in the government, association and pharmaceutical worlds. She managed reimbursement and quality reform efforts, directed AIDS policy issues, organ transplantation programs, drug-development needs for rare diseases, drug-pricing issues, pharmaceutical public-policy operations, new business start-ups, joint-venture partnerships and international government relations.
Her work is based on a tenure as a Reagan Appointee, and on the global policy operations she developed for Merck & Co., Inc., which was recognized by her peers as the best of the Fortune 500. Policy’s greatest contributions are made when they support operating, commercial objectives, as she knows well from her experience as vice-president for Worldwide Operations of Merck’s Vaccine business and through her service of Boards of Directors.
Dr. Crooks devotes her time to professional and philanthropic endeavors as well, serving on the Board of Directors of several health organizations including Partnership for Prevention. She was a member of the National Council of the Institute for Child Health and Human Development, chairman of the National Commission on Rare Diseases, and received the Congressional Exemplary Service Award for Orphan Products Development. She is a recipient of the highest award in public health, the Surgeon General’s Medallion, awarded by C. Everett Koop.
Dr. Crooks holds a Ph.D. from Indiana University, awarded in 1977.
