Dr. Madhukar Trivedi of UT Southwestern will serve as speaker.

Dr. Trivedi will present an update on UT Southwestern’s unique program to treat depression used by over 60,000 patients in North Texas. Depression affects an estimated 20% of patients and is common in those with chronic diseases.

Tickets are $25 for Alliance members and $40 for non-members. A buffet lunch will be available prior to the panel discussion. You can register here.

The DFW Alliance for Healthcare Excellence is a group of individuals, healthcare systems, private physician practices, managed care organizations, non-profit organizations and corporations in North Texas interested in understanding and supporting healthcare excellence. The Alliance achieves this through educational and networking luncheons, awarding community healthcare heroes and supporting healthcare student scholarships.
