DFWHC’s Love serves as keynote at North Dallas Chamber Conference


More than 150 attendees turned out for this morning’s North Dallas Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Health Care Conference.

As they say, “The best laid plans.” Due to weather issues, Dr. Cheryl Pegus, the original keynote speaker of the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Health Care Conference this morning at Scottish Rite for Children in Dallas, was unable to attend. With a few hours’ notice, DFW Hospital Council President/CEO Stephen Love and Fidelity Vice President Benjamin Isgur were able to fill the void and serve as co-keynote speakers.

Love discussed “The Need for Medicaid Expansion and Legislative Updates” while Isgur covered “Healthcare Trends in 2024.”

The annual event attracted 150-plus.

There was no rest for the weary as Love followed his presentation with the panel discussion “Addressing the Demands of the Expanding Population in North Texas,” moderating guest speakers Lindsey Tyra, chief strategy officer at Children’s Health; Michael Sanborn, executive vice president at Baylor Scott & White; and John Thresher, chief development officer at Medical City Health Care.

Isgur closed the event with “Advancements in Biomedicine with the Health Care Sector,” as he moderated a discussion with Lili Clark, senior associate at Lyda Hill Philanthropies; Claire Aldridge, chief strategy officer at Form Bio; and Gabby Everett, director of business operations at BioLabs Pegasus Park.

DFWHC served as a Supporting Sponsor of the event. Sponsors also included Scottish Rite for Children, Baylor Scott & White Health, Children’s Health, FORVIS, Medical City Children’s Hospital, Methodist Hospital for Surgery, Polsinelli and UT Southwestern.
