Vegas Conference Offers Who's Who of Trump Administration Health Leaders

I was skimming trade journal headlines and the annual HLTH (health innovation) conference in Las Vegas has posted a who's who of health policy leaders on its agenda.

The conference is October 27-30, 2019, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The agenda right now includes:
  • Seema Verma, head of CMS
  • Amy Abernethy, deputy director of FDA
  • Joe Grogan, head of National Policy Council
  • Eric Hargan, HHS Deputy Secretary
  • Tomas Philipson, Chairman of Council of Economic Advisors
  • Adam Boehler, until very recently head of Center for Innovation at CMS
Also on board is Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), a presidential candidate.  (He didn't make the cut for this week's Dem debate, though).

See:  Trade press at MedCity News here.   Conference website here.  Registration is $2600.


If you get bored at the conference, there are two WeWork locations in Las Vegas.
