Jennifer Bruno, Vice President of Global Health Services, Johnson & Johnson, and Jack Groppel, PhD, Co-founder of Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute, were tested when climbing the largest mountain on the African continent. From the known challenges they planned for to the unknown events they could never have imagined, their human spirit was tested. The goal was to summit Mount Kilimanjaro and return safely.
