These are men and women from all walks of life who have faced incredible hardship but have chosen to not only survive, but to learn from the experience, and make themselves and those around them stronger for it. Pete Scobell served 19 years as a Navy SEAL, and has been awarded several personal decorations including two Bronze Stars with Valor, Joint Commendation Medals, multiple combat action ribbons and two Presidential Unit citations.

Effecting Healthcare Change Through Front-Line Leadership

Monday, March 21, 12:30 to 1:45 PM

Fourteen years ago, Scripps Health in San Diego was in disarray. The health care system was struggling !nancially, staff had lost con!dence in leadership and employee morale was at an all-time low. Today it’s a different story for the $2.7 billion integrated system. How did they do it?

Scripps Health CEO Chris Van Gorder, former chair of the American College of Healthcare Executives and author of "The Front-Line Leader," will share more in this enlightening opening keynote that highlights the transformative power of front-line leadership and how a strong corporate culture can help sustain an organization in bad times, good times and times of extreme change.

Speaker

Chris Van Gorder, FACHE, President and CEO, Scripps Health

If Healthcare is About Well Being, Why Am I Stress Out?

Tuesday, March 22, 8:15 to 9:30 AM

The purpose of healthcare is to allevaite suffering and increase well being. And yet, vast numbers of clinicians, administrators and medical staff are feeling over stressed, overwhelmed, over tired and burned out. Learning how to be "selfishly healthy" - without sacri!ce or guilt - will help you to be more relaxed, focused and effective in caring for others.
