The networking with leaders and socializing with brilliant people is just a fraction of the benefit I get out of it. The primary benefit is the education, timely information, and varied perspectives that are shared by high-level healthcare industry leaders. Everyone enjoys the sessions so much - it's like a drink of fresh water each month!
