Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 8: A major conference on "The Health Care Conundrum"

The IU Kelley School of Business 30th Annual business Conference: "The
Health Care Conundrum:A Call for Leadership"

When: Wednesday, March 8
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Where: Indiana Convention Center, 100 South Capitol Avenue,

The 2006 Business Conference will bring together five national figures drawn from the health insurance, pharmaceutical, managed care, health care, and manufacturing sectors whose organizations and professions have a stake in this pressing issue and engage them in a robust search for solutions. The luncheon address will provide a broad public policy, capstone perspective on the matters addressed during the morning panel discussion.

These guys (and when you have power concentrated at this level you can be confident that
the wielders will be guys) are going to have to be part of any solution.

Here's the schedule:

8:00 a.m.
Registration and Networking

9:00 a.m.
The morning session will present a robust, moderated discussion between five chief executives drawn from the pharmaceutical, health insurance, health care/hospital, and manufacturing industries. The following speakers will be challenged to step outside the narrow confines of their respective industry views and begin the process of building the broad coalition that resolution of the health care conundrum will require.

  • Sidney Taurel: Chairman, President, and CEO, Eli Lilly and Company
  • Larry C. Glasscock: President and CEO, WellPoint, Inc.
  • Michael B. McCallister: President and CEO, Humana Inc.
  • Daniel F. Evans, Jr.: President and CEO, Clarian Health Partners
  • Ralph F. Hake: Chairman and CEO, Maytag Corporation
Lunch with Tommy G. Thompson -- Chairman, Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, and Former Health and Human Services Secretary. Mr. Thompson will share his vision of the role public policy makers must take in helping to lead the problem-solving effort.

This one is going to cost you. For information, including registration: http://kelley.iu.edu/alumni/60thAnnual/index.html
