The Medical Board of Governors is a group of leading medical specialists, hospital CEO’s, and key executive leaders in the healthcare and medical sector in Palm Beach County.
Their mission is: “To Lead the Way as a Health Care Organization, to Advocate, Explore, Integrate, Develop, Promote, Mentor, and Inspire.”
The Medical Board of Governors and the Doctors Networking Group is unique to the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce in that doctors are exclusively invited to socialize with and engage each other. Doctors and Healthcare Professionals are invited to mingle in a closed setting designed especially to give the doctors time to learn from each other and discuss the latest in medicine, public policy affecting healthcare, and operational innovations.
