Speakers on the panel include Randy Hartley, chief administrative officer for Nemours Children's Hospital; Thomas Moore, southeast regional vice president-public sector, education and labor markets for United Healthcare; Imtiaz Sattaur, president and CEO of Physicians United Plan; and Bridget Walters, corporate director for patient accounting for Orlando Health.

Aaron Liberman, professor of health services administration at UCF, will serve as the panel moderator.

The event also includes a networking session from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. Both the networking session and the symposium are free for all guests.

UCF's Health Services Administration Alumni Chapter is hosting the symposium, which annually gathers health care leaders for discussions on challenges, opportunities and innovations in today's health care industry.
