UCLA Anderson Alumni Network 

Join UCLA Anderson's New York alumni chapter for an exclusive evening featuring an update on the school from Dean Judy D. Olian and a dynamic discussion on "Testing Theranos" with the authors of The Wall Street Journal investigative report. Learn about the rise of the blood testing company, its 31-year old founder and CEO—and the subsequent federal criminal investigation into whether the company misled investors about the state of its technology and operations. Drinks and appetizers will be served.

"Testing Theranos" panelists:

  • John Carreyrou Investigative Journalist, The Wall Street Journal
  • Michael Siconolfi Senior Editor, The Wall Street Journal
  • Christopher Waver Investigative Reporter, The Wall Street Journal

John Carreyrou, Michael Siconolfi and Christopher Weaver are also finalists of the 2016 Loeb Awards, which are presented annually by UCLA Anderson School of Management to recognize excellence in business journalism. The Loeb Awards Banquet & Awards Ceremony will be held on June 28 at the Capitale in New York City.
