Leading Minds In Business, Benefits, Human Resources, And Health Care Policy Come Together At Sun Life Wake Up Summit 2013

Stocks in this article: SLF

The U.S. business group of Sun Life Financial Inc. (NYSE: SLF, TSX: SLF) today confirmed a group of six expert panelists for its first Sun Life Wake Up Summit on health care reform. Each brings a specific area of expertise and point of view to the health care conversation, guaranteeing a broad perspective on a complex issue affecting brokers, employers and employees.

The panel for this in-depth program, scheduled for October 1, features the foremost benefits and health care policy experts, who will lead thought-provoking discussions about the changing U.S. workplace and provide insurance brokers and employers with practical advice on how to prepare for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The issue is taking on added urgency, as public health insurance exchanges are scheduled to open for business on October 1.

Esteemed panelists include:

Michael W. Ferguson, COO of the non-profit Self Insurance Institute of America: promotes self-insurance as an alternative risk transfer strategy for employers looking to finance their group care and worker’s compensation.

Carol Harnett, Health and disability consultant and employee benefits expert: creates strategies to decrease or maintain benefits costs, improve employee performance and improve corporate profitability.

Barbara Gniewek, Principal in PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Global Human Resource Practice and consultant to providers and purchasers: consults with mid-size and large employers on all aspects of health plan strategy.

Dr. Jeff Bauer, Health futurist and medical economist: focuses on the future of health care and practical approaches to improving health care delivery.

Anat Baron, Former Head of Mike's Hard Lemonade and change strategist: expert in reacting to and exploiting change in business.

Coleman H. Peterson, CEO of HR consultancy Hollis Enterprises and former Chief Human Resource Officer at Wal-Mart: expert in recruitment, development and retention of very large workforces, stressing leadership development and diversity.

“We are honored to feature such a varied group of experts for our first Sun Life Wake Up Summit,” said Wes Thompson, president of Sun Life Financial U.S. “When it comes to health care reform, we know that having one piece of the puzzle is insufficient. Brokers, employers and HR professionals need the whole puzzle to make decisions that are right for them. We’re confident that the diversity of these panels will provide attendees with a 360-degree view of the ACA.”
