Scott Burton has a message for the world of Health Care! Keep it Human!

There are many levels to health care. It all starts with quality medicine. But the places where we can offer genuine care are unending - a kind word, a smile, a laugh, trust, the gift of time. All shape the perspective and, consequently, the attitude of the patient. It's the empowered patient who gets the most out of quality medicine.

A 20 year cancer survivor, headlining comedian and world-class juggler, Scott Burton’s keynote is for anyone in the field of health care - executives, doctors, nurses, clinicians, (even clerical). A funny whirlwind of entertainment - incredible juggling mixed with clean, playful comedy - sheds light on the poignant battles we all go through.  He's worked with Leno and Seinfeld and written for primetime. Now he brings an inspiring and empowering message from the patient perspective.

He had the whole audience of HealthCare workers rolling on the floor with laughter and grabbing for something to dab their tears of joy.
