UCAOA, the College of Urgent Care Medicine (CUCM), and the Urgent Care Foundation are proud to announce Lt. General Russel L. Honoré (Ret.) as the Opening Keynote Speaker for the 2018 Urgent Care Convention & Expo in Las Vegas, May 6-9, 2018. The Keynote address will take place Sunday, May 6 from 4-5:15 pm.

As the commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré became known as the “Category 5 General” for his striking leadership style in coordinating military relief efforts in post-hurricane New Orleans. A decorated 37-year army veteran and global authority on leadership, Gen. Honoré is the go-to expert on CNN on emergency and disaster preparedness and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria crisis management.

Drawing on his in-the-trenches experience managing conflicts of both the natural and man-made variety, his disciplined leadership takeaways inspire audiences in a range of fields, including business, management, government, military and education. Authentic and uplifting, Gen. Honoré delivers a bracing dose of candor in his talk “The New Normal: Leadership and Preparedness in the 21st Century” with real-world leadership lessons that equip audiences with a preparedness mindset. Gen. Honoré shares his no-nonsense approach to getting the job done and instills confidence in tomorrow’s leaders.

His presentation is a timely one, especially considering the recent tragic events in Las Vegas, in addition to the natural disasters in 2017. Businesses, including those in healthcare, have had to revisit policies and procedures and ensure disaster and emergency preparedness plans are in place. These topics will be addressed at the Urgent Care Convention & Expo in practice management and clinical tracks.

Registration for Evolution 2.0 – 2018 Urgent Care Convention & Expo opens January 15. Mark your calendars now for this important, timely, and inspirational educational event.
