Keynote speaker Jennifer Page, the inspirational and entertaining mother of Mini Darth Vader, will describe her family’s journey through the healthcare system. Her son, best known for his role as Darth Vader in the Volkswagen Super Bowl ad, was born with a congenital heart defect necessitating eight major surgeries before age eight. Her transformative healthcare journey has been heartfelt, eye opening and sometimes harrowing. Jennifer will share her many experiences to help participants better understand, identify and address many of the major challenges facing healthcare consumers today.
Clement (“Clem”) Bezold, PhD, Chairman and Senior Futurist, Institute for Alternative Futures (IAF) will present a keynote presentation on “The Social Determinants of Health in the Futures of Primary Care and Public Health”.
Trained as a political scientist, Clem Bezold has been a major developer of foresight techniques, including IAF’s unique “aspirational futures” approach, which uses scenarios to help clients not only to better understand what might happen.
The morning sessions will be followed by breakout tracks covering Community Team-Based Care, Data in Action and Patient and Family Engagement.
