2024 WSHA & AWPHD Rural Hospital Leadership Conference Weekly Speaker Spotlight: Dr. Geeta Nayyar

April 17, 2024

Dr. Geeta Nayyar is a physician-executive and a nationally recognized leader in health technology that bridges the divides between clinical medicine, the business sector and digital health. Dr. G. is a sought-after thought leader, speaker and media contributor on topics such as emerging health tech, AI, digital health and the current and future business of health care. In her new book, “Dead Wrong,” Dr. G. presents an insightful blueprint for diagnosing and treating health care’s misinformation crisis. Throughout her career, she has led in critical roles, most recently as the chief medical officer of Salesforce and AT&T.

In “Dead Wrong,” Dr. G. merges her deep commitment to reliable, relatable public health messaging and her executive and boardroom experience to make the case that building trust and health literacy at scale requires health care leaders to take responsibility for the problems and their solutions. Dr. G. consults for some of the nation’s most influential medical organizations and businesses, such as the American Medical Association and ZocDoc, and she is a board member of the American Telemedicine Association and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Alumni Association. She speaks at national and global conferences and is regularly featured on CNBC and Yahoo! Finance to illuminate some of health care’s most urgent issues.

Dr. G. will deliver the opening keynote presentation for the 2024 WSHA & AWPHD Rural Hospital Leadership Conference on June 24. For more information on this year’s event and to register, please click here. (Ashley Trotti)
