The Summit continues a tradition of identifying important healthcare marketing and physician relationship challenges and tackling them head-on. More than 800 attendees are expected.

Submission Deadline: Proposals were due Monday, July 31, 2017.  Accepted presenters will be notified via email by mid-December.
