Introducing: Julie Bruns
HCCT Conference Program Director
As a veteran in the call center industry, Julie Bruns has attended the Healthcare Call Center Times conference for more than twenty years. When she got the opportunity to become our conference program director (even though her LinkedIn profile says her job title is “happily retired”), she couldn’t resist.
“This conference has a long history of bringing a lot of value to our industry and I hope that I can build on that foundation that’s been established,” Bruns says, who retired from St. Louis Children’s Hospital in 2021. “I feel excited to be able to continue to contribute to the industry and work with many of the people I’ve known throughout my career.”
She’s spent more than 30 years in the healthcare call center industry, involved in a range of activities, such as nurse triage, scheduling, physician referrals and transfer center. That breadth of experience will help her develop conference sessions that meet the needs of attendees.
Bruns will lead an advisory group of industry professionals to develop the program, secure speakers and help with the day-to-day operations of the conference.
Her goal is to select a broad range of topics that interest the audience and appeal to both the clinical and non-clinical side of the industry. She’s looking for speakers who will be engaging, interactive and leave the audience with key takeaways that they can use in their workday.
The conference will be June 7-9 in Atlanta. The conference has been on hiatus for the past three years, due to the pandemic. For Bruns, her favorite part about the conference is the networking opportunities and the chance to connect with her peers.
“The conference feels like a family reunion,” Bruns says. “It’s an opportunity to reconnect on a personal and professional basis. This conference is a great opportunity for attendees to recharge and learn from our speakers.”

Let me say what a great conference you put together this year! It was absolutely fabulous with all the great sessions and people that were in attendance. It was certainly filled with a lot of positive energy and a wealth of information.
The speakers had some of the best material I’ve seen and there is a lot of opportunity to network with a number of the people at the conference.
I also want to say that your staff at the conference were extremely helpful, courteous, and went out of their way to offer assistance wherever they could. You couldn’t have had a better group of people!
This year’s conference was stellar! I found the information very relevant and applicable to my work. It energized me, and for that, I am appreciative.
