FRESNO – The next semi-annual BEAR Breakfast, presented by the Economic Development Corporation serving Fresno County, is being held this Friday beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo Dining Garden.

The focus of the morning will be “Economic Impact of Healthcare in the Valley.”  Presenters will include Dr. David Hawkins, provost and dean of pharmacy with California Health Sciences University, as well as Lynne Ashbeck, regional vice president of the Hospital Council of Northern & Central California.  Hawkins will discuss how the Central Valley can meet the increasing demand for primary care professionals in our region.  Ashbeck will share the significant economic impact of hospitals in Fresno and Madera Counties.

“The July BEAR Breakfast, sponsored by Moore Twining Associates, Inc., will engage Central Valley residents and businesses in a discussion about the economic impact of healthcare in our region,” said a representative from the EDC.  “As health care reform continues, the growth rate for health care jobs and infrastructure will significantly increase and impact the economic development of our region.”

During the breakfast, Fresno Chaffee Zoo CEO and Director Scott Barton will tell the audience about the latest developments at the zoo, including the future “African Adventures” exhibit.

Tickets to the breakfast are still available, and can be purchased by calling (559) 476-2500 or visiting by 5 p.m. today.  Tickets can also be purchased on-site Friday morning if seats are still available.  200 guests are expected, and they can take advantage of complimentary parking at the East Gate Entrance.  Event sponsor is Moore Twining Associates, Inc., and additional sponsors are the City of Fresno, Fresno Chaffee Zoo, and Monster City Studios.
