Pack Plenary Session: Healthcare Challenges, Opportunities and Transformation in a Modern Day Plague
When: June 9, 2021, 10:00 am - Wednesday
Where: Collins Auditorium
The past eighteen months have been dominated by a global pandemic – the worst in over a century. COVID-19 has subjugated every element of our lives by creating disruption, division, isolation, economic hardship and – most devastatingly – the death of colleagues, friends and loved ones. The health care community has been thrust into a challenge where for a period of time hope seemed lost. In this time of recovery, three physicians will discuss their thoughts on the reemergence of hope from the lessons learned by the health care community in working through the challenges of the pandemic. Dr. Lisa Piercey, Tennessee Commissioner of Health, will discuss the hope of vaccines. Dr. Kevin Fickenscher will share thoughts on the many changes in how healthcare delivery will be altered by the crisis. Dr. Suzanne Olbricht challenges us with important strategic questions confronting our healthcare system needs as we move forward with reviving hope.
