National Restaurant Association Announces New Health Care Knowledge Center at NRA Show 2013
CHICAGO, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Foodservice operators looking for answers about how the health care law will affect their business will find information they need at the 2013 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show. Located on the Show floor, the new Health Care Knowledge Center at the NRA Show (Booth 6520) will offer exclusive opportunities for attendees to meet one-on-one with independent, restaurant-focused health care consultants about their unique challenges related to the law. Appointments are free and on a first-come, first-served basis through the NRA Show website.
"The impending implementation of the health care law is raising a lot of questions. Whether you're an owner-operator, a franchisee, or a human-resources executive at a chain restaurant, you need to understand how it applies to your operation and how to prepare for it," said Jeffrey W. Davis, Convention Chair for NRA Show 2013 and IWSB and CEO of the United States Beef Corporation. "That's why we have assembled a team of experts with more than 120 years of health care and employee benefit experience to tackle those questions head-on for you, so you can go home confident and ready to take care of your business and employees."
All Health Care Knowledge Center experts have expertise in health-care reform and employee benefits.
In addition, NRA Show 2013 will offer each of the three health care-focused education sessions twice during the Show to maximize attendees' ability to attend and benefit. The sessions will provide both big-picture knowledge as well as concentrated overviews on the details, based on operation size. Visit the Education page for a full list of sessions and times.
