Learn and discuss the future of healthcare systems with MaRS’ Senior Advisor on Health System Innovation - Dr. Zayna Khayat.
With healthcare such a big topic these days, it's hard not to think about what's coming ahead. Stay ahead of the curb by chatting with Zayna about the healthcare systems of the future. Pick her brain about her work at the MaRS Discover District, her past experiences in management consulting, or her work as a member of various university faculties.
Zayna in an interview on how to "Discover Your Pathway" and another where she gives a talk called "Why Should I Care about Health Care Sustainability?" with Dr. Ernie Lightman.
Prior to joining MaRS Discovery District, Dr. Khayat was a senior leader with the International Centre for Health Innovation at the Ivey School of Business at Western University, where she currently is an Adjunct Faculty member. She is also an adjunct faculty with the Rotman School of Management in the Health Sector Strategy stream.
From 2010-2012, Zayna was an associate partner with SECOR Consulting/KPMG Canada. There, Zayna worked with medium and large sized public and private health and life sciences organizations in Ontario and nationally on issues of strategy and management. Prior to joining SECOR-KPMG, Zayna was a Principal with the Toronto office of The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a global management consulting firm.
Zayna earned her Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Toronto / Hospital for Sick Children where she was a scholar of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, studying how insulin and exercise regulate blood glucose in the muscle, and why/where this process breaks down during disease states such as diabetes. She has more than 10 publications and chapters in international journals and textbooks.
Zayna completed undergraduate studies in biochemistry at the University of Windsor, where she earned the President's Medal for top all around graduate of the University (1996) and the Board of Governor's Medal for top graduate of the biochemistry department.
Zayna is also a senior advisor to Endeavour Volunteer Consulting Netowrk (EVCN), a volunteer based consultancy that provides strategic and management advice to non-profit clients in the GTA. She speaks proficiently in French and Arabic, and resides in Toronto with her husband and 3 children.
