Why You Should Attend

What local companies are saying about the Innovations in Healthcare Series: and exciting options to learn about. - Jake Nolin, HR Director, Rice Lake Weighing Systems

...the series was excellent. Walked away from each session with a TO DO to self or something to follow up on.  - Lonna Brantner, Benefits Manager, Phillips-Medisize

...I am very excited about the formation of an employer coalition. This is exactly what is needed to bring the tools and ideas that were discussed to life. It is very important that employers band together in an effort to bring healthcare costs down to a manageable level. - Mary Steinke, General Manager, Huebsch Services

...This was a great series, very informative and helpful. I think it gave a number of local employers hope to think there is a way to work outside of the large health care systems in the area, and not sacrifice the kind of plan offered to the employees, nor increase costs many times over. It points out how much work it is, but as employers, we have to start somewhere.  I feel better informed and prepared discuss options and future plans. - Kim Plautz, Human Resources Manager, W.S. Darley &Company

...The series was very informative. - Dawn Wodalski, HR Manager, Mitchell Metal Products of Merrill Inc.
