We are excited to invite you to join us for the 11th Annual Healthcare Supplier Diversity Symposium, hosted by Owens & Minor, which will be held on Tuesday, September 13 and Wednesday, September 14 at the Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa/Short Pump in Richmond, Virginia. Additionally, there will be a pre-Symposium Charity Golf Event held on the afternoon of September 12.
Our theme for 2016 is “DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION” which addresses the need for breaking the status quo in the healthcare supply chain. The present and future industry dynamics demand significant strategic changes in some areas as evolutionary shifts have been too slow. The unified goal across the value chain is increased opportunities to positively impact patient outcomes and economic development for the communities in which all stakeholders live and work.
Disruptive Innovation is the emergent concept that will be leveraged to accerlerate growth opportunities that capitalize on the synergies of the entire supply chian in the delivery of value to provider customers.
The symposium agenda includes phenomenal featured speakers and content, along with ample opportunities to network and gain valuable knowledge. During the Earl G. Reubel Awards Gala on Tuesday evening, we will feature keynote speaker Dr. Randal Pinkett, Chairman and CEO of BCT Partners. Randal is the author of several books; a Rutgers, Oxford, and MIT graduate holding five academic degrees in total and was a Rhodes Scholar. Dr. Pinkett is the only African American to ever win NBC's “The Apprentice,” following which he subsequently worked with Mr. Donald Trump.
And we are excited that, on Wednesday, we will host amazing keynote speaker Pamela Sutton-Wallace, Chief Executive Officer of the University of Virginia Healthcare System. Pamela has a dynamic presence and will address the very real challenges and opportunities facing the healthcare provider community charged with implementing the Affordable Care Act and the implications for those who comprise the supply chain as integrators, distributors, suppliers, and manufacturers.
