The Charlotte Chamber’s 2018 Health Care Summit will bring together hundreds of top executives, policymakers, consumers and business leaders for a one day deep dive in the current and future state of Health Care. We’ll take a hard look at the opioid epidemic and hear from former Congressman Patrick Kennedy on his personal struggle and his professional challenges. We’ve also brought back the highly sought after CEO panel. Novant Health’s Carl Armato, Atrium Health’s Gene Woods and Premier’s Susan DeVore will take the stage to share their visionary leadership perspectives on the industry’s challenges and opportunities. You don’t want to miss this event.
