Convening Panel

Our Convening Panel is the backbone of our agenda setting process.  These are leaders from across the health care spectrum in Northern California and which help us think through the content, topics and speakers for our 2017 event.

If you have an interest in joining the group and offering your two cents – or more if you’d like! – don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
