State of Reform to host annual conference Sept. 12 in Irving


State of Reform has a date in North Texas! After the past two years in Austin, the conference series bridging the gap between healthcare policy and political reality will host a busy agenda on September 12 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Irving Convention Center. DJ Wilson, president/CEO of State of Reform, will serve as host.

The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) is a sponsor of the event, with a convening panel including W. Stephen Love, president/CEO of DFWHC; Kristin Tesmer, president of the DFWHC Foundation; Joel Ballew, vice president government and community affairs, Texas Health Resources; Larry James, CEO of City Square; Senator Nathan Johnson; Ken Malcomson, president/CEO of the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce; Frank McStay, senior policy advisor of Baylor Scott & White Health; and Cristal Retana, manager of community and government relations at Children’s Health.

More than 20 educational sessions and 60 speakers are scheduled. DFWHC hospital and associate members will receive a 20 percent discount by using the code “DFWHC20.”

This multi-silo event convenes leaders from across 12 different silos: health plans, hospitals, provider groups, state agency leaders, elected officials, mental health, pharma, health IT, professional services, HR/employee benefits, public health, and local government. The idea is to bring together perspectives and opinions from across the broadest scope of Texas’ healthcare sector.
