Class of 2020


John Cromwell is a professor of surgery at the University of Iowa, where he directs a laboratory that studies the application of real-time analytics and computational methods to eliminate adverse events during the delivery of hospital care. Most recently, his team used advanced analytics in the operating room to reduce surgical site infections by 74% and is investigating scaling this technology to make it available broadly. John also serves as faculty in the graduate program in informatics. He holds a bachelor of science in chemistry from Nebraska Wesleyan University and completed his medical and surgical training at the University of Minnesota.
