    Healthcare is one of the most pressing issues in the U.S. and around the world. With so many changes, government regulations, and competitors, it would be impossible to summarize this within an hour. But, we have brought in the best of the best in the area and will offer you a chance to meet these speakers and learn more about how to engage in conversations about their needs and obstacles. They will offer our attendees ways to 'get in' to their organizations and what their processes are to hire consultants.
