Historical Info

Since the first conference in 1977, the annual Private Sector Conferences at Duke University have brought together disparate groups for dialogue around common interests. Conferences were held at various venues around the Duke University Medical Center. Conference proceedings were authored by Duncan Yaggy or William G. Anlyan until around 1994, when Vicki Saito and Ralph Snyderman became primary editors of the proceedings. Also in 1994, the conference name was changed to Duke Private Sector Conferences. In 2002, the name changed again to Duke Health Sector Conferences.
