State of Health preparations are under way

By Chamber Staff / Events / April 17, 2020

In response to the ongoing need for social distancing, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber’s State of Health is pivoting to a virtual event on July 13. While Chamber and community members will not be able to meet in person for this event, State of Health will still feature a chance to connect digitally with health care leaders discussing the role that the business community plays in public health outcomes.

Noted health care and finance filmmaker and researcher Ron Galloway will deliver a keynote address on how innovation and technology might light the way forward in a post-pandemic health care industry society. Galloway has directed four films and authored four books. He also writes a column for the Huffington Post, and his work has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and New Yorker magazine.

He has appeared on CNN, CNBC, the BBC, and was the subject of a lengthy feature on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show. Galloway is a graduate of Georgia Tech and was an investment advisor and analyst for nearly 20 years.

“Now is a critical time that we can re-examine our health care industry and see how we can make it even stronger,” Galloway said. “I think we’ve seen just what we can do when we are pushed to the maximum, and I think that it can a positive impact. It has also given us a baseline to better judge what, if any, components can be tweaked to make it even better for America.”

The State of Health will also feature a panel discussion from public health experts as they give an ongoing update about how the role businesses play in ensuring a successful public health strategy. Registration for this digital event will open soon.
