March, 2, 2018
POCATELLO– On Thursday, March 29, Dr. Fahim Rahim, nephrologist and co-founder of the Idaho Kidney Institute, will speak on behalf of the Idaho State University College of Business’s Wells Fargo Speaker Series.
Lunch will be served at noon followed by Rahim’s presentation from 12:20 to 1 p.m. in the Pond Student Union Ballroom on the Pocatello campus.
Rahim is well known for his philanthropic and innovative business contributions to health care and rural communities in need. Most recently, Rahim announced a new Bingham Healthcare Medical Campus in Chubbuck to be constructed over the next year in collaboration with Bingham Memorial Hospital and other physicians in the area.
According to a December interview with the Idaho State Journal, this new 20-acre, multi-building business venture will open the lines for more friendly competition among health care providers in the Pocatello and Chubbuck areas while also providing more health care options for local patients, especially those with narrow insurance networks.
In addition to this most recent project, Rahim,along with his brother Naeem, received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor in 2010 as recognition for their service and dedication to their field. The brothers also established the JRM Foundation for Humanity in 2010.
Among his business ventures, Rahim and his brother own and operate the three offices of the Idaho Kidney Institute.
As both a successful businessman and physician in the eastern Idaho area, Rahim will provide great insight into the business side of the health care industry for students and community members attending March’s event.
Thanks to generous contributions made by Wells Fargo, the College of Business Professional Development program is able to host an executive-level speaker each semester as part of the Wells Fargo Speaker Series. These events bring in a large crowd of students from throughout the University as well as community members and ISU faculty and staff, providing tremendous value for students planning their future careers.
The Speaker Series event is open to students, ISU employees and the public. To reserve your space, please contact Gail Hunt at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 208-282-2504.
