Herb K. Schultz, regional director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will keynote the Pacific Coast Business Times’ 2013 Champions in Health Care Summit.
The event, which also celebrates the 2013 honorees in the Business Times’ Champions in Health Care special section, will take place June 21 at El Encanto in Santa Barbara.
The theme for this year’s summit is “Bending the Cost Curve: Partnerships for Affordable Care.” Health care executives and professionals from across the region will be honored and they will also participate in a panel discussion on innovative ways to make the delivery of health care more efficient and cost-effective.
The luncheon program will take place 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at El Encanto, which is located at 800 Alvarado Place in Santa Barbara.
Schultz, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2010, heads Region IX, which includes Arizona, California, Nevada, Hawaii and a number of Pacific island nations and territories. In addition to his keynote talk, he will co-host the panel discussion with Business Times Editor Henry Dubroff.
“We’re producing a brand new event with our Champions program this year and I’m delighted that Herb Schultz will join our program,” Dubroff said.
Congresswoman Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, will introduce Schultz. This year’s Champions in Health Care award winners will be announced in the May 24 edition of Pacific Coast Business Times.
