Hobson and Tanner deliver Medtrade keynote

Sunday, August 26, 2007

ORLANDO, Fla. - Medtrade snagged two high-profile guests to deliver a video keynote address: Reps. John Tanner, D-Tenn., and David Hobson, R-Ohio. The high-powered duo co-authored H.R. 1845, the Tanner-Hobson Bill, which if passed would make national competitive bidding less onerous for home medical equipment providers.

Invacare is sponsoring the event. Company CEO Mal Mixon and Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Cara Bachenheimer will introduce the representatives.

The event will take place at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 2 in room W110A/B of the Orange County Convention Center.
