Nationally known health care expert Kyu Rhee will be the featured speaker for the final presentation in the 2016-17 Executive Management Briefings series, presented by Oklahoma State University’s Spears School of Business, along with corporate sponsors.

Rhee will give his luncheon briefing, “Health Transformation in the Cognitive Era,” from 12-1:30 p.m. March 29 at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.

Rhee was previously the chief public health officer at the Health Resources and Services Administration. He is currently the chief health officer at IBM with global responsibilities for Watson Health. He received his medical degree from the University of Southern California and his master’s degree in public policy from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

The Executive Management Briefings speaker series is coordinated annually by OSU’s Center for Executive and Professional Development. The program brings in distinguished business leaders, authors and policymakers to speak to the Oklahoma City business community. In November, Carly Fiorina, former chairman and CEO of Hewlett Packard and 2016 presidential candidate, was the first speaker in the Executive Management Briefings. John Rossman, author of “The Amazon Way” and current managing director with Alvarez & Marsal, was the second speaker in the briefing series in February.

This briefing will also attract an audience attending the OSU Predictive Medicine and Health Analytics Conference on March 29. Topics on this health care conference include Population Health Trends, Population Health Management, and Delivery of Health Care: Payers and Providers. Speakers include national and local experts. The attendees of this conference have the option of attending Rhee’s Executive Management Briefings presentation.

Registration for Rhee’s presentation is $85. To register or for more information, visit or contact Courtney Garrison, OSU Program Manager, at 405-744-5208 or 866-678-3933 or by email at
