The North Dallas Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Health Care Conference originally scheduled for this Friday at The Westin Galleria in Dallas has been postponed for public safety concerns. The event was cancelled due to the rapid rise in COVID-19 Omicron cases in Dallas County.
“Unfortunately, due to the most recent and significant spike in virus cases, we believe it is prudent to consider other options for our program this year,” the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce said in an email. “This decision has been made with ongoing consultation with our friend and colleague, Steve Love of the DFW Hospital Council, area health care professionals and after we received multiple expressions of concern from sponsors and speakers.”
Love, the DFW Hospital Council president/CEO, was to moderate the panel discussion “Crystal Ball: Divining the Future of Health Care,” with Charles Smith of Charles R. Smith Consulting; Lara Kent of Holmes Murphy & Associates; and Benjamin Isgur of Fidelity Health Solutions.
The keynote speaker was to be Admiral Brett Giroir, MD, who formerly served as the 16th Assistant Secretary for Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Admiral in the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps., and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force.
The conference, to include the same agenda and speakers, is expected to be rescheduled for March or April. A new date will be announced in the coming weeks.
