BAYADA Speaker Series

Since 1975, Mark Baiada HD `14 has been living the mission of the company he founded. BAYADA Home Health Care vows to help people have safe home lives with comfort, independence and dignity. Because of their dedication and a set of guiding principles, the company has grown significantly, but at the heart of their organization are the competent health professionals who serve thousands of clients and their families at some of the toughest times of their lives. Today, he, wife Ann Baiada HD `14—herself a registered nurse—and the committed professionals at BAYADA Home Health Care build relationships with those they assist by getting to know them and bringing compassionate care when working with their clients.

The Baiadas’ company established the BAYADA Home Health Care Speaker Series at Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions in 2015. With a goal of promoting intellectual stimulation and enhancing the quality of student life and faculty and staff development, the lectures highlight the efforts of CNHP faculty research and cover a variety of topics, trends and innovations.

BAYADA’s support of the Speakers Series has allowed us to present discussions covering everything from living well with dementia and improved physical therapy outcomes to obesity and diabetes prevention, youth suicide and gaming technology for children with physical disabilities.
