John “Jack” E. Wennberg, MD, MPH
Throughout four decades of work, Jack has documented the geographic variation in health care that patients in the United States receive. In 1988 he founded the Center for Evaluative Clinical Services (CECS), now called The Dartmouth Center for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI), at Dartmouth Medical School. He is the Peggy Y. Thomson Professor Emeritus in the Evaluative Clinical Sciences at Dartmouth, and has been a professor in the department of community and family medicine since 1980 and in the department of medicine since 1989. He is also a co-founder of the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation.
Together with his colleagues, Jack has produced the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, a series of reports on how health care is used and distributed in the United States, and he recently published the book Tracking Medicine: A Researcher's Quest to Understand Healthcare.
He earned his MD from McGill University Faculty of Medicine and his MPH from Johns Hopkins University.
Jack joined the Healthwise Board in 2014.
