Convening Panel

Our Convening Panel is the foundation upon which our agenda development process rests.

It’s a tremendous group of thought leaders, policy advocates and senior executives that crosses the various silos which exist in health care today.  We rely on their engagement, their experience, and their counsel to help build our Northern California event.

So, it is with tremendous appreciation, pride and gratitude that we list our Convening Panel members for our 2016 Northern California State of Reform Health Policy Conference.
