2013 Fall IDN Keynote Speakers

Major (Ret.) Vincent E. Boles
Major General U.S.
In this interactive keynote presentation, General Boles will lead the audience through the top 10 emerging trends in Supply Chain Management (i.e. Green Packaging, CPI, Energy Reduction, Globalization, Relationship of Supply Chain Professionals in the Management Structure, etc.) and discuss the leadership challenges and opportunities aligned with these trends.
Kenneth E. Salyer, M.D.
Founder and Chairman. World Craniofacial Foundation
Dr. Kenneth Salyer was initially thrust into the national spotlight fifty years ago when he was one of the Parkland Hospital surgeons who worked valiantly to save the life of President John F. Kennedy. The president was the young surgeon's hero, and following his death, Dr. Kenneth Salyer vowed to make the most of his life during the time that was given to him. This speech is a fascinating recollection of the events—and the meaning—of November 22, 1963.
Chuck Lauer
Healthcare Business and Policy Expert
Chuck Lauer welcomes another group of prominent health system C-suite Executives to the IDN Summit. His popular Thought Leadership Panels are always the highlight to the General Session programming of the IDN Summits. Learn how these healthcare leaders are leading their systems during dramatic industry change and fostering a culture of accountability. You’ll learn how to develop a culture that encourages open communication, trust, and accountability to improve the delivery of world class patient care. The session will be designed to encourage audience interaction and exchange.
