Presented by WellStar, the 2014 Summit features a line-up of speakers representing the health care, insurance and pharmaceutical industries, providing business owners and HR professionals valuable insight into what Health Care Reform means for their organizations.

Designed as an interactive and informative experience, Summit attendees will be able to interact with speakers during the live discussion using audience response systems. Roundtable discussions will also be led by trained facilitators, providing structured opportunities for strategic and tactical idea-sharing.
