A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT
The New York & New Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council conducted its Healthcare Symposium on September 9th. The event, which was held at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ provided an opportunity for our MBEs to receive invaluable insight into the healthcare industry and how to participate in its supply chain. It is because of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and University Hospital’s major support and participation that this event was such a great success. We especially extend our thanks to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for serving as the event host and sponsor. Likewise, we are thankful for our annual sponsors’ support of this event, and for your participation.
