This year’s NH Business Review Executive Series, “Health Care Trends,” will feature a look at important health care policy updates and what to expect in the near future, along with a panel of experts to share multiple health care perspectives regarding mental health and addiction in the workplace.
The forum will include a perspective on health care policy from keynote speaker Ed Prewitt, editorial director of the New England Journal of Medicine Catalyst. Prewitt works closely with NEJM Catalyst advisors, authors and colleagues to ensure that editorial content advances the national and international dialogue to drive innovation in health care delivery.
