Our Past Powers Tomorrow:
The 2013 Union Delegates Conference
Some 700 union delegates will discuss the future of unions and health care partnerships in Anaheim, Calif., from May 3-5. They will hear from leading economist Dr. James Galbraith on the state of the U.S. economy, the health care industry and the future of unions. Also on hand will be Bryant Terry, the Oakland-based food justice activist and chef, who will do a cooking demonstration while talking about the politics of food. Union leaders and top KP executives, including CEO Bernard Tyson and Dr. Jack Cochran, executive director of the Permanente Medical Federation, will also address the delegates. There will be a host of hands-on workshops for frontline leaders and lots of time to network with colleagues. Check back throughout the weekend for up-to-the-moment tweets and on-the-ground updates.
