Michael Ugwueke is President & CEO of Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, a six-hospital system in Memphis with $2 billion in annual revenue. 

“If everyone could feel the anguish of a mother whose son has been murdered; or the father of a daughter who has been killed; or a wife who has lost a husband, and a healthcare community that has lost a member of its family; we would be well on our way to establishing solutions to overcome this societal disease.”
