WHA President and CEO Eric Borgerding participated in a health care policy panel Feb. 26 at Carroll University in Waukesha. More than 150 students attended, the vast majority studying to be future health care providers. Borgerding emphasized that Wisconsin is a great place for clinicians to work and practice, increasingly due to the team-based care environment and ongoing efforts to enable top-of-license practice. He explained how WHA uses public policy and advocacy to modernize and update laws and regulations in these areas. He urged the students to stay and practice in this great environment and encouraged them to engage with WHA.
Other members of the panel included QuadMed Vice President of Business Development Matt Wilterdink, Husch Blackwell partner Tom Shorter and OSF St. Anthony Medical Center (Rockford) Vice President of Ambulatory & Procedural Services Suzanne Fischer. Carroll University Distinguished Lecturer and Professor Sarah Esveldt organized the event, which was sponsored by the university’s Future Healthcare Executives club.
