The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the critical importance of IDN supply chain leaders. Just as the pandemic has transformed us as leaders, the supply chains we operate are evolving, too. How do we strategically approach new challenges, enhance current operations, and ensure continuity in the healthcare supply chain going forward? On August 31, we’re heading back to the classroom for the IDN Summit Thought Leadership Panel to answer these questions and more.

Join Brent Petty as he hosts leaders from three of American’s top supply chain management programs, the University of Tennessee’s Dr. Randy Bradley, the University of Arkansas’ Dr. Claudia Rosales, and Arizona State University’s Dr. Eugene Schneller. During this engaging discussion on the issues impacting your IDN supply chain, they will share insight into the healthcare supply chain trends on the horizon, discuss how to overcome tomorrow’s challenges, and answer your questions.
