On Thursday, January 16, SRQ magazine hosted the third event in its 2013-14 series of SM2 breakfast symposiums on working in the healthcare and aging field. This gathering of approximately 100+ regional leaders and entrepreneurs throughout Sarasota and Manatee County generated synergies on efforts both counties are making to support our healthcare industry. During the discussion, panelists shared their insight on the opportunity for our region to lead the discussion in aging and senior care innovation. The audience received a collaborative mix of perspectives from panelists Peter Wozniak, Robert Carter, Jonathan Fleece and Tom Esselman.
Two of our panelists provided some great feedback on the event:
“I thought the event was very informative. The panel was very diverse, and as a result, were able to address the subject matter in very different, yet both comperehensive and complementary ways. A number of people approached me afterwards with positive comments.”
– Robert Carter, President and CEO, Senior Friendship Centers
“The discussion regarding aging is timely and important given the changes occuring in healthcare. This is especially important for us at Venice Regional, given the large number of people in our community who are over the age of 65.”
– Peter Wozniak, CEO, Venice Regional Bayfront Health
