Attend the Health Leaders Dinner on Wednesday, Nov. 15 at The Rattlesnake Club.

The health care industry is the region’s largest employer and contributes $36 billion in economic impact annually. The health care ecosystem continues to evolve at the national and regional level, and stakeholders must collaborate in order to maintain and showcase Detroit’s position as a health care destination for innovation, talent and quality care.

During this invitation-only dinner, health care leaders and stakeholders will discuss the current state of the region’s health care ecosystem and brainstorm potential opportunities to cultivate economic success while improving the health of the community.
