Clayton Christensen Update

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Matt Christensen had a wonderful career at Duke and also the longest, given that he did a Mormon mission in the middle of it.  He did a lot of favors for Duke and for Duke fans, not least of all making us aware of his father,  Clayton, who has helped us all become familiar with the valuable idea of disruptive innovation (Netflix is a prime recent example).

Unfortunately, Dr.  Christensen's life has been disrupted significantly lately as he's dealt with diabetes, a heart attack, lymphoma and a stroke.

Might as well call him Dr. Timex, because the man takes a licking and keeps on ticking. He has  recently applied his considerable intellect to the problem of health care. Given his remarkable contributions in other areas and his immense gifts, perhaps we should listen to what he has to say.
