The Minority Chamber of Commerce (MCC) announces the premier regional Health Human Services Forum-2017 with the participation of leaders in healthcare at top levels of the U.S. government and the private sector.
The MCC forum, closed to the public, takes place at the world-class Intercontinental at Doral Miami, March 10, 9 am – 2:30 pm. The program brings together leading U.S. government figures overseeing new developments in healthcare, corporate executives, regulators, healthcare providers, minority business owners, and technology/solutions providers. Attendees will share and explore new ways to advance and enhance business development and discover new opportunities in the delivery of healthcare.
The invitation-only forum features several healthcare experts who will share their knowledge, expertise, and concerns regarding the movement to repeal of Obamacare. The conference is being billed as “the ultimate Q&A about healthcare under a Trump presidency.”
“President Trump has promised that healthcare will be better for small businesses under his administration, much better, and for less money – which I am sure everyone agrees is an excellent combination,” says MCC President & Founder Doug Mayorga.
“However, small businesses need definitive information and direction with regard to the emerging state of healthcare across the Southeast, particularly in South Florida,” Mayorga added. “While we support improvements to the Affordable Care Act, we believe it’s crucial to uphold the law in full. Efforts to repeal or undermine the healthcare law will only create instability in the market, create confusion, and make it more difficult for small employers and self-employed entrepreneurs to gain coverage.”
