Ed Hardin named 2021 Chuck Lauer Award winner at the Fall IDN Summit

Sept. 8, 2021

IDN executives, Suppliers and GPO partners safely gathered in Phoenix for the 2021 Fall IDN Summit August 30 - September 1. They learned from over 35 faculty members, reconnected during multiple networking functions and celebrated Ed Hardin’s legacy as he received the 2021 Chuck Lauer Award.

After a lifetime of service to the healthcare supply chain, Ed Hardin posthumously received the 2021 Chuck Lauer Award presented by the IDN Summit & Reverse Expo. We remembered Ed Hardin’s legacy as a supply chain leader, an educator and mentor, a longtime IDN Summit Board Member, and, most importantly, as a friend to many.

Healthcare supply chain executives, thought leaders and leading professors served on the IDN Summit Faculty. These individuals shared their expertise and insights with over 750 attendees who participated in the in-person educational program.  With tracks in Clinical Integration, Executive Leadership, Financial Operations, Pharmacy and Supplier Strategies, the future-focused sessions gave attendees the information and tools to successfully navigate healthcare supply chain operations in 2021 and beyond.

After a two-year hiatus, the IDN Summit Reverse Expo returned to Phoenix on Tuesday, August 31, 2021. More than 100 IDN executives exhibited during this Fall’s Reverse Expo. These individuals safely reconnected and networked with suppliers and GPO partners during the four-hour Reverse Expo.
