Health care is not simply about doctors diagnosing and treating illnesses. It involves a complex web of factors, weaving together educational institutions, finance, government relations and more.
The health care industry is constantly creating jobs, from doctors and nurses to technicians and more. It also creates more opportunities for economic development.
It has become a major driver in Arkansas’ economy, and one regional organization is exploring the impact that health care has on the state’s economy.
The Little Rock Regional Chamber is highlighting health care and the economy at its quarterly Power Up Little Rock economic development series.
On Wednesday, April 24, the chamber is gathering three health care leaders to discuss the major trends that are occurring in the health care industry. These leaders include Marcy Doderer, President and CEO of Arkansas Children’s; Cam Patterson, Chancellor of University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; and Troy Wells, President and CEO of Baptist Health.
Before the keynote addresses and presentations begin, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast and network.
The event will be held Wednesday, April 24, at the Robinson Center (Ballrooms A-C), from 7:30 to 9 a.m.
Individual tickets for the event are $35. Register for the event here.
