Built to Scale: Customer Discovery
Customer discovery is a critical, yet often overlooked, tool for moving research into practice. The methodology involves identifying and understanding potential customers’ needs and pain points. At 10 a.m. Thursday, October 13, join guests Ricky Venters and AJ Donelson, who draw on their extensive experience in the business field to share insights on how customer discovery can help transform a vision of an evidence-based intervention into a validated and scalable model.
The Built to Scale series, offered via Zoom through the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing RESILIENCE Center, explores challenges and successes in scaling evidence-based health interventions.
Honor a Star/Diversity Award
Consider honoring a special person or persons at this year’s An Evening with the Stars celebration, 6-8 p.m. Thursday. November 10. Not only will that person receive recognition, but your support will help raise important scholarship funds for future Hopkins Nurses from our Baltimore community. Purchasing a star in someone’s honor leads to: Your tax-deductible gift directly benefiting JHSON’s Baltimore Talent Scholars Fund; the person you are honoring receiving a notification letter from JHSON; that person’s name displayed at this year’s event; and that person’s name included in this year’s event program.
And while you’re there, please take advantage of the opportunity to nominate a colleague for the School of Nursing Diversity Award.
