You won’t want to miss our featured speakers:

  • Elisabeth Rosenthal, a journalist, physician and Editor-in-Chief of Kaiser Health News, is the author of An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back, a New York Times bestseller. She will highlight problems in the health care systems and consumers’ role in tackling them.
  • Alan Weil, Editor-in-Chief of Health Affairs, will offer his thoughts on the pros and cons of the managed care model for Medicaid, and will moderate a panel of experts with diverse views on the subject.
  • Aiden Mitchell, vice president at Arrow Electronics, will speak to the role of technology in today’s health care system — and tomorrow’s.
