Each year’s theme reflects an area of significant interest to those in the health care industry and beyond,” states Dr. Ullmann. “This year is no different, the theme being AI, The Economy, and Elections. We have assembled health care industry and organizational leaders, experts in AI and keynote futurists to stimulate discussion. With well over 500 in attendance, the networking opportunities are a highlight of this signature event,” he adds.
A networking breakfast and lunch as well as strategically placed coffee breaks are included in the program.
