September 13, 2009


Vanguard Healthcare and Rand Corporation recently staged a major healthcare summit here in Nashville. The program, entitled "Third Rail of Healthcare Reform", featured top healthcare professionals and political figures in an intelligent discussion of one of the most important issues in the healthcare debate - "cost control". Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen hosted the event and served as moderator for one of the panel discussions. Other participants included; US Representative Jim Cooper, former comptroller of the United States David M. Walker, President and CEO of Rand Corporation Jim Thomson, and several other innovative leaders in healthcare reform.

Gary Musick Productions was tapped to provide all production and event management services for the event. Acting under the direction of Vanguard's Danelle Cain and public relations firm Guerra, DeBerry and Coody (GDC), GMP producer Brandon Thomas lead our team in the management of the audiovisual production of the event as well as all logistics related to transportation, catering, printing, signage, parking, and staging design. We also provided the live webcast of the event, with participants logging on from more than 20 states and several foreign countries. The event was covered by several local and regional media outlets, including local television affiliates and newspapers. Congratulations to the entire team for an outstanding event on every level!
