Christopher Fey, Founder, Chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine has, for the third consecutive year, been selected to participate in the annual Wall Street Journal CEO Council. The group’s annual summit is being held November 14-15, 2011 in Washington, D.C. Fey, along with 99 of the world’s leading CEO’s and most influential business leaders and policy makers will develop recommendations to address global and domestic economic issues.
Membership in the prestigious CEO Council is by invitation. According to the Council website, the group of leaders collectively employs over 5 million people, generate nearly $2 trillion in annual revenues, and represent 11 countries and a diverse cross-section of industries.
Fey will lend his insights as an entrepreneur and innovator in the health care industry. “I am honored to once again be invited to participate in this is prestigious group. As these business and thought leaders convene to address some of the most pressing social and economic issues facing the U.S. and global economy, we cannot understate the importance of health. The health of our workforce directly impacts the productivity, innovation and resiliency of our workforce and our economy. The rapid increase of chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity and others are one of the most significant threats to our global prosperity. Through my health care expertise, I hope to bring an important perspective to the discussions,” said Fey.
This year's meeting theme will be Toward a New Global Order, and will have a special focus on China's role in the world, as well as the global economy, job creation, and tackling the deficit. As part of the meeting, the group will split into topic-specific task forces where Council members work together to identify and prioritize key recommendations for both business strategy and government policy. This year topics include Forging a Stronger U.S. China Partnership; Building a U.S. Export Economy; Encouraging and Protecting Innovation; and The Global Competition for Resources. Results of these discussions will be published in a special worldwide report of The Wall Street Journal.
