NEW YORK, NY – BioSAFE is honored to announce that its Chief Executive Officer Phillip Mervis will speak alongside national and world leaders at the upcoming 11th Annual C3 US-Arab Healthcare and Business Summit. The summit is to occur on Sept. 19 at the Union League club in New York, NY.
Mervis is to appear on a panel of five, which includes Ambassador Dr. Deborah Birx and other prominent health leaders from the United States and Saudi Arabia. The panel will discuss the future of healthcare in a post-COVID Middle East. Topics of interest include health and environmental standards, public health risk containment, and management of biological waste in times of crisis.
The same morning, Mervis will also moderate a discussion on how hospitals, clinics, and laboratories can reduce their healthcare waste recycling costs.
The C3 Summit brings together business leaders, government officials and healthcare luminaries from both the United States and the Middle East to encourage American investment in health and industry in Arab countries. Summit leaders hope to build positive partnerships between the USA and these various countries to yield economic, diplomatic, and humanitarian hope for the future. This is especially important to our freshly post-COVID-19 world.
