Carmela Mancini, DO, MPH, Gold Direct Care

As business owners, we know the truth of the saying “Your health is your wealth.” But do we understand how the healthcare system is changing, and new ways to get the most benefit from it? In her talk “Healthcare with a Direct Impact,” featured speaker Dr. Carmela Mancini of Gold Direct Care in Marblehead, MA, will explain how the primary care service system has, over the last decade, abandoned the doctor-patient relationship in favor of a system dictated by insurance plans and focused on profitability. Dr. Mancini practices a healthcare model called Direct Primary Care, which focuses on quality care delivered in a personal, transparent, and cost-effective way. Come and learn how Direct Primary Care differs in cost and focus from the current system and concierge medicine. The North Shore Business Forum meets on Friday, May 6 at Acapulcos, 900 Cummings Center, Beverly, MA. Registration begins at 7:15 AM, the meeting runs from 7:30 to 8:30. Admission is $10 at the door, and includes a buffet breakfast. Visit www.nsbforum.org for more information.
