The Congress Starts Today!

The Employer  Healthcare & Benefits Congress is finally here! Attendees from across the world have traveled from all across the world for three days of education, networking, and fun in beautiful downtown Los Angeles! Located at the LA Convention Center, next to the Staples Center, in the heart of downtown LA, the EHBC kicks off with the training session taught by  Denise Holland, President & Owner of Inside Employee Wellness & Consulting, LLC., and Susan M. Nash.

Also today is the Healthcare Revolution Innovation Forum, a multipart venture capital education session. Capping the event is a venture pitch event bringing in start-ups to sell their idea to our body of judges. The winner will receive a prize package including marketing and actual venture funds.

Following the Healthcare Revolution Innovation Forum will be the YOUniversity Transformational Well-being Workshop.  YOUniversity transforms outstanding students into global scholars who envision new possibilities and leave their personal imprint on the world. The wellness industry talks a lot about the power and importance of “workforce engagement,” but how about we take a step back and first start with an increased engagement of self?

After the YOUniversity Workshop, will be the Voluntary Benefits Association (VBA) and the Global Healthcare Ventures (GHV) annual advisory board meetings. The VBA meeting will be hosted by Robert Shestack, Chairman & CEO of the VBA and President of GHR Health & Productivity Practice. The meeting will also host the annual VBA Awards ceremony (stay tuned for a list of the winners!)

Finally, the  day’s education will end with the Women’s Leadership “Ask the Experts,” an this interactive Q&A segment dedicated to the business of women’s health and well-being. Speakers include:
