The healthcare landscape in the U.S. is rapidly transforming. To explore how Arkansas keeps pace, ACHI brought together local, regional, and national leaders from across multiple industries to discuss the future of health care in our state.

At symposia in Little Rock on Oct. 25, 2023, and Fayetteville on Nov. 2, 2023, panelists highlighted emerging trends in health care, from workforce shortages to the rise of digital health and artificial intelligence. Both events also featured keynote presentations by futurist, trendcaster, and New York Times best-selling author Shawn DuBravac, PhD, who explored disruptive technological shifts in business, health care, finance, and culture.

Thank you to all who joined the discussions. For those unable to attend or who would like to revisit the engaging conversations from the symposia, recordings from both events are available below.
