)-- Influential thinkers at the vanguard of evolving healthcare benefits and systems will be among the featured speakers at the 2nd Annual Women’s Healthcare & Insurance Leadership Summit,(http://www.employerhealthcarecongress.com/womens-healthcare-insurance-leadership-summit/) Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014, 1-5 p.m., at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, Washington, D.C., the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress announced.
Dr. Wendy Lynch, Director of the Altarum Institute’s Center for Consumer Choice in Healthcare and founder of Lynch Consulting, and Sibyl Bogardus, Chief Compliance Officer at Hub International Services, will join leading women from around the world for a summit dedicated to sharing ideas, opportunities and means to inspire and overcome obstacles in the delivery of healthcare and benefits both domestically and internationally.
“Women make up a majority of the population; yet, are routinely omitted from conversations specific to healthcare policy and practice,” said Renée-Marie Stephano (http://www.employerhealthcarecongress.com/womens-healthcare-insurance-leadership-summit/), President of the Corporate Health and Wellness Association and Chairwoman of the Congress at which more than 2,500 insurance executives, HR managers, employers, government leaders and healthcare executives will converge at the world’s largest employer healthcare and benefits event. “Forums like this provide a unique venue to discuss new ways to track and assess quality of care and to make visible knowledge disparities – those that affect both men and women – that don’t always get the attention they deserve.”
The Summit, held in conjunction with the 6th Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress, elevates women with both the personal and profession tools and techniques used by leaders in in both the healthcare and insurance industries.

The Corporate Health and Wellness Association (CHWA), also known as the Health and Wellness Association or the Corporate Wellness Association, is the first national non-profit association focused on health, wellness, disease prevention and management for employers, employees and their families. The Corporate Health and Wellness Association was founded as an employer, affinity group and insurer coalition. Many employers and affinity groups do not know where to turn to find out what are the corporate wellness programs to offer to employees and who the best corporate wellness companies are, or what corporate wellness programs offer the best return on investment (ROI). The Corporate Health and Wellness Association will work to accomplish these goals on behalf of our employer, affinity group and insurer members. www.WellnessAssociation.com.
