The Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC), Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council and Jewish B2B Networking will be co-host the fifth annual Healthcare Summit & The Business Event on November 10 at the Drury Lane Theater and Conference Center, in Oakbrook Terrace.
Independent healthcare practitioners, integrative medical office doctors and administration, wellness center management and small business owners are encouraged to attend this event for learning, active participation and networking.
The keynote speaker is Jason Montrie, president of Land of Lincoln Health. A Business Event Educational Forum will be presented by the Illinois Department of Employment Security, along with Access to Capital by the Chicago Mayor’s Panel. Expected attendance is more than 3,000.
“Over the past several years, there have been major changes in the healthcare industry and how it affects small business. This event allows the healthcare providers and payers to connect with the small business community and share with them success stories and educate them on what is working,” says Michael Cavanaugh, co-CEO of the SBAC.
SBAC was established in 2010 and represents more than 1,200 businesses in Illinois. This event will join many small business and healthcare leaders to discuss ways they can collaborate to lower healthcare costs, expand coverage options and promote employee wellness. The event also provides hospitals to showcase services and capabilities to area employers in their communities.
