The Connecticut Health Council, founded in 2012 by the MetroHartford Alliance, is an association of health sector leaders who work together to promote Connecticut as a premier center for the development of businesses, initiatives, and technology that improve health care and wellness both nationally and in the State. The Council fosters collaboration, education, entrepreneurship, and networking among leaders of for-profit and non-profit entities within the health sector.
The Council’s primary activity is to host programs focused on health sector topics and that feature speakers of regional, national, and international renown. The series provides a forum for a robust network of experts, professionals, and other parties interested in leveraging and promoting Connecticut’s considerable health sector assets as a primary driver of economic and employment growth in Connecticut.
The Council is co-chaired by Marty Gavin, President & CEO of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, and Bob Patricelli, Chairman & CEO of Women’s Health USA. Mickey Herbert, former CEO of ConnectiCare, is serving as the Council’s Interim Executive Director.
The Council will formally launch on Wednesday, December 12. Robert J. Blendon, an award-winning researcher in public opinion and professor at the Harvard School of Public Health and the John F. Kennedy School of Government, will be the keynote speaker.
