Speakers Announced: Wright L. Lassiter III, Arn Tellem Join 2020 Conference

Wright L. Lassiter III, Arn Tellem Prove Partnerships Power Communities

Wright L. Lassiter III, president and CEO of Henry Ford Health System, and Arn Tellem, vice chairman of the Detroit Pistons, will engage in a conversation about the importance of partnership and community investment for the city’s future at the 2020 Detroit Policy Conference on Wednesday, Jan. 29.

The pair recently made news with the opening of the long-awaited Henry Ford Detroit Pistons Performance Center, a collaborative project yielding positive impacts that extend beyond sports and medicine.

Henry Ford Health System’s commitment to community health is well-represented in the multi-faceted use of the 185,000-square-

foot facility. It will not only serve as the Detroit Pistons’ practice facility and headquarters but also will foster healthy lifestyles in the surrounding community through public access to fitness resources and healthy food options.

Similarly, the $90 million development completes the Detroit Pistons’ move to the city, reinforcing the organization’s desire to double down on its support of Detroit’s economy through job creation and special events.

This is one of many engaging sessions in which you can participate at the 2020 Detroit Policy Conference. Look for more announcements in the coming weeks, and reserve your spot today.
