    GIBSONIA, Pa., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Barnabas Health System has
 announced plans for its 16th annual St. Barnabas CEO Leadership Conference.
 The conference will be Friday, Sept. 27 at the Kean Theatre in The Washington
 Place, 5847 Meridian Road.
     Nearly 300 CEOs and their seconds-in-command from Western Pennsylvania
 businesses are expected to attend.  The theme of the conference is "BIAS - For
 and Against Western Pennsylvania Business."
     Panels planned for the conference include "Treating the Development
 Complex Syndrome," "Taking Bets on Biotech," and "Security in All Its Forms."
 Each panel discussion will be led by some of the region's top experts in their
 respective fields.
     Bernard Goldberg, author of "Bias," will be the keynote speaker.  A former
 CBS correspondent, Goldberg makes an argument that there is a strong culture
 of liberal bias in the news media.  Since hitting the shelves earlier this
 year, "Bias" has become a New York Times bestseller and the subject of much
     Goldberg has won six Emmy awards for his work as a senior correspondent on
 the CBS News broadcast "48 Hours."  He now reports for the critically
 acclaimed HBO program "Real Sports," hosted by Bryant Gumbel.  In April 2001
 he won his seventh Emmy for a "Real Sports" story titled "Dominican Free for
 All," an investigative report on major league baseball recruiting in the
 Dominican Republic.
     The conference is by invitation only to CEOs and their seconds-in-command.
 It will begin at 7:30 a.m. with light refreshments.  The conference will be
 from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.  A luncheon in The Washington Place will follow.
