EXPLORE HEALTHCARE SUMMIT FEATURES ACCLAIMED SUBJECT OF THE BOOK, MOVIE AND BROADWAY PLAY “CATCH ME IF YOU CAN” AS KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Frank Abagnale, one of the world’s most respected authorities on cybersecurity and fraud prevention, and the subject of “Catch Me If You Can,” will give two keynote addresses at the EXPLORE Healthcare Summit on Thursday, August 11, in Norman.
EXPLORE, Oklahoma’s largest healthcare conference, provides a unique opportunity for physicians across various specialties and geographic regions to meet and join other healthcare industry leaders in a discussion about the future of healthcare in Oklahoma.
Abagnale has worked with, advised and consulted with hundreds of financial institutions, corporations, the FBI and government agencies around the world over the past 30 years. His rare blend of knowledge and expertise began more than 40 years ago when he was known as one of the world’s most infamous con men.
One of Abagnale’s addresses will cover his time as a con man and his transition to the right side of the law. The other will outline the latest information to protect institutions, associations and corporations from embezzlement, forgery, counterfeit currency, check fraud, identity theft and internet fraud.
Other EXPLORE speakers include: Natalie Stavas, MD, who was named 2013 Bostonian of the Year for her efforts during the Boston Marathon bombing; John Banja, PhD, Professor and Medical Ethicist, Emory University; Gerald Hickson, MD, Sr. VP of Quality, Safety and Risk Prevention, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine; and Larry Van Horn, PhD, MBA, Executive Director for Health Affairs, Owen Graduate School of Management, Vanderbilt University.
“The ultimate goal of the EXPLORE conference is improved patient safety and satisfaction,” said Shari Moore, vice president of risk management at Oklahoma City-based PLICO, the Summit’s presenting sponsor.
“We work hard to find speakers and educators that are highly respected in the medical field and are skilled at communicating practices that will positively impact individual patients,” said Moore.
The EXPLORE Healthcare Summit will be August 11-12 at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in Norman.
