The BIO International Convention, described on its Web site as the largest global event for the biotechnology industry, will bring together Sen. Tom Daschle; Sen. William H. Frist, M.D.; Gov. Howard Dean and Karl Rove, former adviser to President George W. Bush for a keynote discussion about health care reform.

Promotional material about the panel, sponsored by Amgen, says it will “preview the congressional debate as republican and democratic policy leaders and political operatives discuss their differing perspectives on the challenges and opportunities associated with the comprehensive reform of the U.S. health-care system.”

The panel, scheduled to start at noon ET 12:40 ET, will be webcast.  (Web site and press release apparently have the time wrong.)

AHCJ member Susan Dentzer, editor-in-chief of Health Affairs and an  on-air analyst on health with The NewsHour with  Jim Lehrer, will moderate the session.
