[ Event Details ]
On behalf of Owens & Minor, Inc., a global leader in healthcare services and supply chain management solutions, we would like to invite you to be a prominently featured sponsor of the 13th Annual Healthcare Supplier Diversity Symposium (HSDS). This event will be held on Thursday, September 24 – Friday, September 25 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago, Illinois.
Each year, Owens & Minor hosts the HSDS to elevate the visibility of key topics affecting healthcare’s diverse supply chain and industry, and ultimately patients. The symposium features leaders from healthcare delivery systems, medical device and supply manufacturers, healthcare distributors, government, and academia with one unifying objective—to identify solutions that improve the quality of care while leveraging an economically sustainable model.
One of the symposium highlights is the Earl G. Reubel Awards Gala, during which advocates of healthcare supply chain diversity – providers, suppliers, and individuals – are recognized for being a positive catalyst of change. Our 2018 event will focus on the theme“Economic Inclusion: Be Intentional.” and what it means for you, your customers, and the world around us.
We currently have the following innovative speakers on the agenda to discuss Population Health, Public & Private Collaboration, Cooperative Competition, and Population Education:
- P. Cody Phipps, President & CEO, Owens & Minor
