Executive Speaker Series: How Healthcare Has Changed the Business Environment.

October 6, 2016

Our panel of experts discuss the healthcare environment and its effects on doing business.

The Affordable Care Act has generated much discussion since it was signed into law in 2010. Some would like to repeal it, and return to a less restrictive business model. Others take the opposite tack, calling for a single-payer system to manage healthcare costs.

Our speakers will look beyond the politics of these positions and discuss the healthcare environment as it stands now—its successes, challenges and ideas for improving the system—and how it might impact individuals, businesses and the overall economy in the future.


Rob Casalou, Regional President and CEO of Saint Joseph Mercy Health System
