POCATELLO – On Wednesday, March 27, Troy Bell, president and chief executive officer (CEO) at TanaBell Health Services, will speak on behalf of the Idaho State University College of Business’s Wells Fargo Speaker Series.

Bell is also a former president and chair of the Idaho Health Care Association and is a current member of the ISU Foundation Board.

“I bleed orange and black,” Bell said. “I will forever be indebted to Idaho State for the education, experience and life lessons ISU has afforded me.”

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, 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.
