Speaker Series

Healthcare Thought Leaders Speaker Series
Thought leaders in healthcare are invited to speak to program participants and guests about topics that are important to practicing healthcare professionals.

As part of this speaker series, guest speakers share educational content, research, and topic briefs that are context relevant. Attendees have the opportunity to engage in a question-and-answer session during and after each presentation.  Presentations take place either as part of the program segments, or as separate standalone speaker events.
