Spending Too Much on Healthcare? This Employer-Designed Conference Will Inspire!
Date:12/29/2008

Presenters include speakers from The Center for Health Value Innovation, The Employee Benefits Security Administration, Industry Professionals, and Employers, along with breakout sessions to customize learning.

The worst thing you can do is go to a conference and feel you wasted your time. This won't happen at our conference ... you'll leave feeling inspired!"

"At first, this idea was quite controversial. I wa
