“Greg Carlson has more than 29 years of health care administration experience, as well as a Ph.D. in health services policy and management. We are incredibly honored to have Dr. Carlson at USD, and without Avera’s support it would not have been possible,” said Mike Keller, dean of the Beacom School of Business.
