Everyone agrees that the healthcare system is broken, and there’s no shortage of ideas of how to fix it.

Blue Shield of California is spearheading an effort to get those in power who can make a difference to come up with a plan and take action.

The Thought Leadership Dinner, hosted by members of Blue Shield’s executive team, convened business executives and influencers from across Northern California for a conversation on the future of our healthcare system, with a specific focus on the business community. 

The most recent event took place Wednesday in Sacramento where roughly 50 business executives, civic leaders and health care professionals met to find ways to improve health care across California and the nation.

Among leaders who attended were Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg; Keith Knopf, chief executive of the grocery chain Raley’s; Larry Levitt, senior vice president for health reform at the Kaiser Family Foundation and Sandra Hernandez, president and CEO of the California Health Care Foundation.
