Join Governor Phil Bryant and the Mississippi Economic Council, Mississippi Business Group On Health, Mississippi Development Authority & Mississippi State Medical Association for the Governor’s Health Care Economic Development Summit on Thursday, August 16 at the Jackson Convention Complex!

“This year’s Summit will showcase how we have been engaging the business and medical communities in the common goals of growing the healthcare industry in Mississippi to increase access, improve outcomes and create more employment and economic opportunities for residents.”

Phil Bryant, Governor, State of Mississippi

Leaders from multiple healthcare industries and economic development fields will discuss Mississippi’s great opportunities and how to position healthcare in our state as an economic driver. 

  • Each new doctor creates an economic impact of approximately 2 million dollars for his or her community. This indeed is economic development.
  • Collaboration of all health care providers is the only way to achieve success.
  • We must heal together, research together, and find better ways to serve our citizens together.

There is no cost to attend for individual attendees.


We hope to see you there!
