East Meets West: World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress Features International Voices

Top Asian Healthcare Executive, U.S. Physician Group Leader among Speakers, Sept. 20-24, 2014, in Washington, D.C.

 
PRLog - Jun. 11, 2014 - PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- East meets west when the leaders of an internationally recognized healthcare provider in Asia and the largest doctor group in the United States converge to speak before some 3,000 delegates and exhibitors at the 7th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, Sept. 20-24, 2014, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, in Washington, D.C.

J.M.H. (Mack) Banner, CEO of Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand, and Robert M. Wah, M.D., president-elect of the American Medical Association, will be among some 100 speakers at the annual educational and networking platform – considered the world’s largest medical tourism event -- for hospital administrators, doctors and clinicians, employers, government policymakers, insurance executives, travel and tourism entities and related healthcare interests.

“No one has to look far to recognize that healthcare is in a state of flux,” said Jonathan Edelheit, CEO of the Medical Tourism Association®. “Innovation, discovery, policy and economics have altered – for good or bad -- the international landscape and will continue to do so. There is no better time for gathering industry thinkers who can ignite conversation, inspire collaboration between diverse and like-minded groups, and forward strategies that foster investment and promote a healthier community for the providers and facilitators of medical care and, most importantly, the patients they serve.”

Other speakers to address affordable healthcare, niche medical tourism sectors, employee insurance benefits, marketing international destinations, and advancements in science and technology include Rohit Bhargava, best-selling author of “Likeonomics & ePatient 2015”; Dr. Tebelelo Mazie Seretse, ambassador of Botswana to the United States; and Rep. Joseph M. McNamara, chair of the Health, Education and Welfare Committee in the Rhode Island General Assembly, among others.
