(CNS): Following on from the country’s first National Health Conference in November, the Cayman Islands will be playing host to the health leaders at another conference on the subject later this month. Cayman Island Healthcare Thought Leaders Forum will take place in the afternoon of 19 January at the Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman. Expected to focus on the short and long-term improvement in the quality of healthcare in the region, as well as searching for ways to reduce healthcare costs and increase employment for Cayman Island citizens, the conference is being organized by CBCA Administrators, a US based employee service organisation.

Ken Di Bella, CBCA Administrators president and CEO, will lead the forum, officials said in a release, with a presentation detailing ways that wellness and chronic illness management programs benefit the Cayman Island population by reducing healthcare costs and promoting healthy living. Di Bella is also expected to reveal “innovative ideas on how to keep more Cayman healthcare dollars on island,” the release stated.

“Through my relationship with CINICO, I have come to understand and appreciate the unique aspects of the healthcare system of the Cayman Islands,” Di Bella said. “Our goal is to create an open discussion that will foster growth and bring revolutionary ideas to the futureof healthcare on the Cayman Islands.”

Health Minister Mark Scotland will give the opening address. Dr Edward Cabrera, KePRO chief medical officer, and Kelly Burn, a respected healthcare consultant with significant ties to the Caribbean Island Nations, will also be speaking at the Forum.
