A Harrisburg University faculty member will be a speaker at two events aimed at attracting and supporting leadership development, culture, and talent in the healthcare professions.

Geoffrey M. Roche will speak at the HR + Talent Virtual Summit, which is put forth by Becker’s Healthcare, on July 14, 2022.   Additionally, he is speaking at the Advancement League’s Young Health Leader Summit, which takes place August 3-5 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“These speaking opportunities provide me with an opportunity to share a message about the importance of culture in the healthcare professions and further guide the multi-generational workforce that exists all throughout healthcare today,” says Roche, who is a member of the Population Health corporate faculty at the University. 

Becker’s Healthcare is the go-to source for healthcare decision-makers and one of the fastest growing media platforms in the industry. Through print, digital, and live event platforms, Becker’s Healthcare equips healthcare leaders with the information and forums they need to learn, exchange ideas and further conversations about the most critical issues in American healthcare. More on the event is found here
