Since that time, our program has been co-chaired by former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, M.D., and Larry Van Horn, Ph.D., professor of health care management and economics at the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University.

Nashville provides Council Fellows with exposure to the leaders who created the biggest health care organizations in the world and to those who are introducing revolutionary new models to market.

With an unmatched legacy as an incubator of health care providers, health services start-ups and professional service firms, Nashville serves as home to 17 publicly traded health care companies and a health care industry which generates nearly $100 billion in annual revenues.
