Leonardo J. Lozada, M.D., Saint Luke’s Health System senior vice president and chief physician executive, and William C. Daniel, M.D., Saint Luke’s Health System chief quality officer, have received and accepted personal invitations from the Secretary of the Air Force to attend the 62nd annual National Security Forum (NSF) at the Air War College, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. The purpose of NSF is to expose influential citizens to senior U.S. and international officers and their civilian counterparts in order to engage each other’s ideas and perspectives on Air Force national and international security issues.

During the week of May 5-7, approximately 150 civilian leaders in business, education, and government from all over the U.S. will meet with senior military leaders to explore current and future national security issues facing our nation. The NSF provides a great opportunity for an open and candid exchange of ideas among these guests, senior military and civilian leaders, and Air War College students. Lozada and Daniel will attend lectures, meet in seminars for in-depth discussions, and participate in social events.

“To have two members of our executive leadership team selected to be a part of this very prestigious group is a tremendous honor,” said Leonardo J. Lozada, M.D., Saint Luke’s Health System senior vice president and chief physician executive. “Will and I are both personally very excited to participate, have the opportunity to share our input and expertise, and bring home new information as well.”

The Air War College is the senior professional development school in the Air Force officer education system as a part of Air University. AWC educates selected senior officers to lead at the strategic level in the employment of air and space forces. The AWC curriculum focuses on coalition warfighting and national security issues, with emphasis on the effective employment of aerospace forces in joint and combined combat operations.
