Ryan Holeywell, Communications Director at the Texas Medical Center, will share his insights with IABC Houston on how the largest medical center in the world is communicating to push the limits of what's possible.

Holeywell will discuss the challenges of developing and disseminating consistent messages about the world-class medical services, as well as the innovative research taking place at the Texas Medical Center, to domestic and international audiences.

He will also focus on engaging with the more than 60 institutions that are a part of the Center to tell cohesive and compelling stories, as well featuring the contributions of the hundreds of individuals who work at the Texas Medical Center, many of whom have earned international acclaim, like 2018 Nobel Prize winner Dr. James Allison.
