Since 2010, the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School has brought you healthcare industry leaders to your front door.  Last year, we tackled an issue with widespread consequences: rising costs.


We kicked off the conference on the morning of Friday, November 11th with a keynote address by Enrique Conterno, then Senior Vice President of Lilly Diabetes at Eli Lilly & Company.  The day proceeded with multiple break-out panel discussions about the granular challenges that players from different healthcare industries face, culminating with a networking session for all speakers, sponsoring companies, and attendees.


I loved a lot of the moderators’ questions, and they engaged the speakers in a dynamic, interesting dialogue
