Keynote addresses will be given by Renee Finley, President of Guidewell Innovation, sister company to Florida Blue; and Bob Brigham, Senior Vice President for Hospital and Clinics at MD Anderson Cancer Center and former Chief Administrative Officer of Mayo Clinic Florida. Both are graduates of the Davis College of Business’ Master of Business Administration program.

The event, organized by DCOB and JAX Chamber’s Entrepreneurial Growth Division in partnership with ESCP Europe Business School in France, is designed to embrace innovation in health care and wellness, along with innovation in and around the Jacksonville metro area.

“We are very lucky to have such distinguished graduates from our graduate business programs in all areas, especially those in healthcare,” DCOB Dean Dr. Don Capener said. “It shows the importance of business in the healthcare realm while also showcasing some of Jacksonville’s greatest innovative companies.”
