26th Annual EBMS Health & Business Symposium 2019

23 July 2019



You’re Invited

As the healthcare industry works diligently to improve patient outcomes, contain skyrocketing costs and streamline the complicated healthcare delivery system, the need to share expert perspectives grows even more crucial. Technological advances and innovative initiatives are critical to finding the best way forward.

Communication is also a key component, which is why the EBMS Health & Business Symposium, now in its 26th year, has never been more important.

As in previous years, EBMS is presenting a strong lineup of exceptional industry experts to share insights into the rapidly changing healthcare landscape and focus us on key topics as we move ahead.

We’re proud of our leadership role in the state’s business community.

Never been here before? Billings has year-round activities from trails around the city to the top of the rims, a lively art and music scene, wineries, breweries and great eateries. Have an extra day?
