June 8, 2022, SAN MATEO, Calif. — Collective Health will hold its sixth annual conference, Together with Collective Health, featuring today’s most insightful business, health and policy leaders to discuss the future of health benefits. The theme of this year’s event is “Benefits Built To Include and Empower All,” and will bring together forward-thinking benefits leaders, consultants and brokers, digital health partners and health tech industry luminaries.

This virtual event will feature keynote fireside chats with Abby Wambach, two-time Olympic Gold Medalist & FIFA World Cup Champion, New York Times Best Seller, and advocate for equity and inclusion, and Dr. Bapu Jena, host of Freakonomics, M.D. podcast, health economist, physician, and professor of healthcare policy. Carin Taylor, Chief Diversity Officer at Workday, will deliver a standalone keynote speech on ways culture and benefits can be reimagined to further promote diversity, equity and inclusion for all.

“This year’s theme, ‘Benefits Built To Include and Empower All,’ is particularly important to me and something I’m very passionate about,” said Ali Diab, Co-founder and CEO of Collective Health. “Making benefits even more inclusive, accessible, and empowering is absolutely essential to ushering in a new era of health and wellbeing in our country. I firmly believe that these types of dialogues help remind us that healthcare is deeply personal and when we pursue further innovations in this space, we have to keep the end-user, that person and their experience, as the focal point. Not bring to market innovation for innovation’s sake, but rather innovation for the sake of making it possible for people to live healthier lives.”

In addition to the keynote discussions, the event will also feature live breakout sessions, customer and partner panel sessions and network partner round robin sessions. A sampling of members from the Collective Health Premier Partner Program™ will participate in the program alongside networks from the Collective Health ecosystem. All participants will contribute to conversations around customer and network involvement in the ever-evolving benefits landscape. Notably, a panel discussion featuring Lyft will explore the value of virtual primary care in today’s dynamic health benefits environment.

“This event provides a unique opportunity to bring together the leading voices in the space to have candid conversations around the future of health benefits,” said Kaye Foster, Senior Advisor, Boston Consulting Group. “These discussions are critical to ensuring employee engagement and retention and will hopefully positively impact the way employers invest their valuable resources in a world reshaped by the pandemic.”

Together with Collective Health will be held virtually on June 28 from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. PT / 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. ET. The presentations and panel discussions will be held in a virtual format to enable a wide audience to learn from these experts.
