[ Event Details ]
On behalf of Owens & Minor, Inc., a global leader in healthcare services and supply chain management solutions, Iwe would like to invite you to be a prominently featured sponsor of the 12th Annual Healthcare Supplier Diversity Symposium (HSDS). This event will be held on Thursday, September 14 – Friday, September 15 at the BWI Airport Marriott in Baltimore, Maryland.
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, which advocates diversity in healthcare—providers, suppliers, and individuals are recognized for being catalysts of change in healthcare through their diversity advocacy. Our 2017 event will focus on the “Healthier Communities 20/20: A Clear Vision for our Future” theme 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:
