Top Industry and Government Leaders in Miami for Major Health Care Forum
The University's 2011 Global Business Forum will come two years after its first Global Business Forum, which brought together nearly 700 professionals for deep discussion on the economic crisis and other issues surrounding increased global connectivity. It is expected to draw global health care CEOs and other senior executives, physicians, health industry analysts, consultants and attorneys, benefit managers and human resource directors, architects, planners and developers, medical equipment manufacturers and engineers and many others representing business and government.
"Like our first Global Business Forum, which was held in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, the 2011 conference will provide an unparalleled opportunity for deep discussion on some of the most critical issues of our time - areas where business and health care intersect," said Barbara E. Kahn, dean of the University's School of Business Administration, which is organizing the Forum. "With the participation of schools across campus, this will once again be a truly interdisciplinary program that cuts across industry sectors, much like the business of health care does."
The Forum's key sponsors include Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. More information and online registration is available at www.umglobalforum.com.
