Cerner’s annual conference brings together the healthcare industry’s greatest leaders and innovators for a three-day event featuring key-note speakers and collaborative discussion groups. As a first time exhibitor at the Cerner Health Conference, Divurgent’s team focused on spreading our community commitment by asking attendees to participate in helping us grow the “Divurgent Donation Tree.” Attendees were asked to randomly select one of five differently colored leafs, with each color representing a different denomination that Divurgent would donate. At the end of the three-day event, Divurgent was able to raise $2,000.

“We promote our community commitment at every event we attend. Divurgent has a corporate commitment to making a difference in children’s healthcare, and not surprisingly, everyone we’ve talked to at Cerner’s Health Conference has made the same commitment by helping us contribute to the Children’s Mercy Hospital,” said Shane Danaher, Client Services Vice President for Divurgent.
Divurgent is proud to have been a part of such a wonderful event, and are thankful to all the attendees who supported us in donating to the Children’s Mercy Hospital. To learn more about the Children’s Mercy Hospital, visit their website at www.childrensmercy.org.
