CEOs Against Cancer

Posted on: September 14th, 2014 by grandave No Comments

On May 7th, 2013, Grand Avenue CEO and Founder Carl Haley attended the Annual Meeting of the Tennessee Chapter of CEOs Against Cancer. Founded with the American Cancer Society this is a group whose sole function is to bring leaders of top businesses throughout the community together to change the course of cancer. The group’s vision is to leverage the collective knowledge, power and resources of the American Cancer Society while utilizing the business strategy and power of this unique group of top level executives.

This year’s meeting focused on tops ranging from improved employee productivity, healthy corporate culture and the organization of health care cost. Across the country and in Nashville, the CEOs Against Cancer forum discuss topics ranging from smoke free workplaces, education and programs to help employees quit smoking, quality education on adopting healthier lifestyles with better nutrition and physical activity and initiating discussion amongst employees and their families on early detection and regular screenings

This year’s keynote speaker at the meeting on May 7th was Warner Baxter, president and CEO of Ameren Missouri whose company is the largest energy provider in the state of Missouri, serving more than 1.2 million electric and gas customers and whose annual revenue is in excess of $3 billion. Also in attendance were Dr. Otis Brawley, Chief Medical Officer of the American Cancer Society and co-chairs of the Tennessee Chapter Damon Hininger, President and CEO of CCA, Dr. Joe DiPietro, President of The University of Tennessee and Steve Reynolds, President and CEO of Baptist Memorial Healthcare Corporation.

“Corporate executives aren’t just important or key or major in the fight against cancer,” said Dr. John Seffin, CEO of the American Cancer Society, “they are essential.”
