Northwest to host premiere healthcare summit for middle managers

Northwest Missouri State University will offer a one-day summit in April to address the dynamic intricacies the healthcare field requires and the gap in training that healthcare managers face.

The healthcare summit will feature three sessions that will include industry-relevant case studies as well as role playing to emphasize 360-degree communication, problem solving and employee coaching – all vital skills for healthcare middle managers.

Few industries literally hold someone’s life in their hands, and that creates a great deal of stress for healthcare providers. Will Stuck, a comedian and storyteller, will address that component during the lunch hour and explain how to find humor in our daily lives to help relieve stress.

Additionally, Randall Resources International will present the 360-degree communication session, which will help the middle manager better communicate up, down and unilaterally with superiors, employees and colleagues.

The summit is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, April 27, at The View at Briarcliff, inside the Courtyard Marriott, located at 4000 N. Mulberry Drive in Kansas City, Missouri. The early bird cost before March 17 is $497. Sponsorships also are available. For additional details and tickets, go to
