Welcome to the 2017 WAHU Symposium!

We look forward to learning with you and discussing industry topics during our conference, “Back to the Future of Healthcare.” The Human Resource and Benefit Professionals attending the Symposium will learn what changes are being recommended by the Trump administration, what HR/Benefit departments need to do to prepare for those changes, what medical providers and insurance companies are doing to align outcomes to reimbursement methodologies, and strategies around managing prescription drug costs. Additionally, the symposium attendees will receive encouragement and ways to help employees deal with tragedy through a moving presentation from our keynote speaker.

This year’s keynote speaker is Jared Estes, who survived a devastating fire after being struck by a drunk driver. Jared barely escaped death as he suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns on half of his body, while his new bride was killed in the crash. During Jared’s long recovery, he became depressed, but through the devastation was able to gain new perspective and find the value of gratitude, forgiveness and perseverance. Among the valuable lessons Jared will share, his presentation will inspire overcoming tragedy, setting goals, relying on your team, considering others in your choices, and not taking “no” for an answer.
