Biographical / historical:

Since the first conference in 1977, the annual Private Sector Conferences at Duke University have brought together disparate groups for dialogue around common interests. Conferences were held at various venues around the Duke University Medical Center. Duncan Yaggy or William G. Anlyan authored conference proceedings until 1994, when Vicki Saito and Ralph Snyderman became primary editors of the proceedings. In 1994, the conference name changed to Duke Private Sector Conferences, and, in 2002, the name changed to Duke Health Sector Conferences.
