“We are thrilled to feature so many forward-thinking organizations that are driving real change as part of the Employer Program at HLTH VRTL 2020,” said Ed Lehman, Mercer’s US Health Leader. “COVID-19 and other compelling social issues have clearly driven home the vital role employers can and should play in reinventing health through empathy, flexibility and true innovation.”
