The "Sustainability in Healthcare Management" discussion is part of the Betty F. Elliott Initiative for Academic Excellence, which was launched in early 2010 by the College of Business as a campus-wide exploration of critical business issues which will connect business leaders, alumni, faculty and students throughout the next decade and beyond. The theme for the year 2010-11 is "The Business of Sustainability".

The Elliott Initiative is made possible by a generous gift from Edward W. Elliott, Jr. (B.B.A. '67) in memory of his late wife, Betty F. Elliott (B.B.A. '67).
