“We are invigorated with the success of LA,” said Jonathan Edelheit, CEO of the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress. “From our great sponsors who made the event possible, to the full educational sessions informing attendees on the latest news and developments, we continued to deliver the conference experience our attendees expect from us. We are looking forward to improving on this experience in Orlando.”
Topics and events at the this year’s conference ranged from the Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist (CCWS) live workshop that took place on the first day of the event, to the Healthcare Innovation Technologies Forum, to the educational sessions featuring the latest in the benefits industry taught with real case studies.
Highlights of this year’s event include:
-Keynote Speaker Dr. J. Craig Venter, Cofounder of the Human Longevity Institute and Sequencer of the Human Genome, discussing the future of genomics and precision medicine.
