Re: You're Invited! Health Policy Event on Adherence - Monday, February 22, 2010
At the League Convention last November, John Miall, the former Risk Manager for the City of Asheville, North Carolina, made an outstanding presentation on how Asheville was able to improve the health of its employees while reducing their health care costs without cutting back on benefits. His presentation was so well-received that many of your colleagues in the audience were asking if he would return to New Jersey so they could learn more about the Asheville Program.
On Monday, February 22nd, the HealthCare Institute of New Jersey will be sponsoring a free public policy forum featuring John Miall in the State House Welcome Center from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Mr. Miall’s approach to benefit design is reshaping how municipalities around the country are providing health benefits that reduce cost but improve outcomes.
I believe this program will be of great benefit and urge you or someone from your administration to attend. The program is free but pre-registration is necessary.
Admission to this event is free, but an RSVP is required. PLEASE RESPOND TO firstname.lastname@example.org by February 18th. For further information call Haskell Berman at 908-212-0333.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
