Add to calendar

Join in the healthcare conversation on SIRIUSXM Channel 111 - the Wharton business channel! A panel of experts will discuss Medicare at 50.

Due to last-minute unforeseen circumstances, today’s show has been canceled.  A replay of a previous show,Delighting the Beneficiary: How Health Insurers Are Becoming B2C Companies, will be broadcast instead.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

We have a great opportunity to spread the word via national radio on the great things being done in the healthcare field by Wharton HCM alumni and by our program. That is where you come in. For those WHCMAA dues paying members, we are offering the opportunity for you to join in the conversation on live national radio to discuss various healthcare topics.  Although in a one-hour show the call-in parts will be limited, we want those parts to be strong and substantive; so we’re lining up WHCMAA audience members (i.e. you) who can add value to various healthcare topics. 

Our next radio session, Medicare at 50, will be Tuesday, December 15th from 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT.  

Click here to register. Open only to current dues-paying members of WHCMAA.  Available to 50 participants.

The user name and password for access to this session will be emailed to all participants on Monday, December 14th.
