Event Details

4th Annual Value of Innovation in Health Care Conference

After a remarkable six hours of oral argument on ObamaCare before the Supreme Court, the stage is set for an historic ruling from the High Court on the future of the health law. The outcome will determine whether Washington continues to turn an infinite number of regulatory dials to try to control one sixth of our economy or whether innovation will be freed to allow transformative changes in medical technology, health care delivery, and financing.

We believe that freedom and the creative spirit will prevail.

Our fourth annual conference on the Value of Innovation in Health Care will showcase top experts from around the country and throughout the health sector who will tell us about the game-changing innovation to come. The Galen Institute never ceases in promoting policies that encourage innovation and patient-centered options for health care. Join us to learn about the exciting advances on the horizon.

Register today to join us at our May 9 conference featuring...
