The Power of Inspiration

By Chris Bent, TRUST President

It’s hard to believe fall is upon us. I feel like time has moved differently during the pandemic. Sometimes days seem to last forever. Sometimes days go by in an instant. And while nearly every day has been intense, I’ve witnessed overwhelming resilience and collaboration from my colleagues and peers throughout the health care industry. We will honor this individual and collective power at the TRUST Forum on Sept. 28 and Awards Celebration on Sept. 14.

Powerful Women Like You

By Chris Bent, TRUST President

Chances are you know a powerful woman in health care. And by powerful, I don’t necessarily mean someone who ranks in the top 10 “best of” list. I’m talking about women who are powerful because of their faith and resiliency, their ability to be innovative and resourceful, their ability to forge relationships and advance health and wellbeing.

A Stronger You Builds a Stronger Us

By Chris Bent, TRUST President

Last month I talked about the Power of Us, the theme for this year’s TRUST Forum on September 28 and Awards Celebration on September 14. We continue to see examples in our professional and personal lives of how our collective strength is mightier than any one person.

But how can you be a stronger you, so you can help build a stronger us?

By Chris Bent, TRUST President

The recent verdict finding former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty in the murder of George Floyd marked a pivotal moment for Minnesota and the country. So too did the statement, less than two weeks earlier, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that racism is a serious threat to the public’s health.

The BIG Career Move: How I Knew I was Ready

By Chris Bent, TRUST President

I’ve been in my role at Prime Therapeutics for almost a year and a half now. As I’ve networked with TRUST members, people ask what prompted me to make the big career change from the provider side in integrated health care delivery systems to a pharmacy benefit management (PBM) organization. As I reflect on the decision, I can honestly say it wasn’t one thing but several. My family, capabilities and interests, and the power of networking were all key factors.

The Power of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

By Chris Bent, TRUST President

I’m in a book club with a wonderful group of women, and this past month our designated book was “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. I read it during one of the record-setting stretches of freezing cold and enjoyed being able to immerse myself in the book fully.

She went on to say in the context of the powerful year we’ve had, it felt like the right one to read in the delicate world we live in. She was so right.
