Bart Walker, an attorney in the Charlotte office of McGuireWoods LLP, was elected to the board of directors of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce Health Services Council.

“My hope as a director of the Chamber’s Health Services Council is to help foster a cooperative environment in which the health care providers in the Charlotte area work together toward the common goals of promoting the growth of health care and life sciences businesses in Charlotte and also supporting efforts to increase access to healthcare for those in our community,” Walker said. “I am extremely honored and excited to have this opportunity.”
