The Healthier Texas Summit is a two-day event for Texas’ thought leaders and health champions to share best practices, discuss current trends and innovations in population and community health, and make connections that will catalyze their work. The only health event of its kind in the state, the Healthier Texas Summit offers informative sessions, town hall conversations, and interactive workshops, with education credits available for numerous professions. If you work to improve the health of Texans, this event is for you.
According to the U.S. Census bureau, Central Texas has the fastest growing ‘pre-senior' population (age 55 -64) in the nation, and ranks second in senior (age 65+) population growth over the same time period. This half-day summit will feature thought leaders and experts who will discuss tech influences, trends, and innovations for healthy aging.
Healthcare is transforming at a rapidly-accelerating pace of change. Shifting healthcare policy, an intensified focus on population health, health information technology, an increased incentive to gain scale and market share, and a growing call to engage patients in their care are creating challenges that require collaboration and innovation by all entities to succeed.
