SENATOR CORNYN HEADS WINTER CONFERENCE SPEAKER LIST
It looks like we’ll have back-to-back U.S. senators delivering the keynote addresses at TMA conferences. After the state’s junior senator spoke at our fall event, Sen. John Cornyn will take the dais during the General Session of the 2014 TMA Winter Conference on Saturday, Feb. 1. Other confirmed speakers include American Medical Association President Ardis Dee Hoven, MD. TMA Board of Trustees Chair Carlos Cardenas, MD, will moderate an in-depth panel discussion, on The Transformation of Health Care. Participants include Texas Health and Human Services Executive Commissioner Kyle Janek, MD; Bert Marshall, president of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas; John Wallace, senior vice president for McKesson Health Solutions; and Palmer “Pal” Evans, MD, senior advisor to Tucson Medical Center and the Southern Arizona Accountable Care Organization. Speaking at the early-morning Dawn Duster about the troubled launch of the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance marketplace is Randy Farris, MD, consortium administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. I hope to see you there amidst this star-studded cast of health care leaders. You can register online and call the Hyatt Regency Austin at (888) 421-1442 for hotel room availability.
