The P&I Forum is an opportunity for clinicians, board members, consumers, executives and other community health leaders to bring perspectives to Members of Congress and offer constructive solutions to the issues at hand. Participants will also have the opportunity to hear from government officials, some of the nation’s leading health care experts, and their peers.
Do not miss this opportunity to get the most up-to-date information and tools to help your health center organization stay ahead of the game.
The NACHC Policy & Issues Forum and EXPO (P&I) brings together more than 2,300 Community Health Center leaders to engage in one of THE largest Washington, DC-based conferences focused on health care policy. The P&I is the heartbeat of grassroots activity for health center advocates, who gather in a dynamic setting to set strategies for legislative advocacy and political engagement with elected representatives. The 2018 P&I comes at a critical time for the nation, now in the midst of an unprecedented transformation of its health care delivery system set in motion by the landmark health reform law and recent boosts in federal support for health centers. Members of Congress and Presidents from both sides of the political aisle have long understood that health centers are key to reforming and improving our health system. In the coming years, health centers will expand access to care by serving new patients, expanding to new communities, and adding more comprehensive services. All of this is occurring as health centers continue to drive our primary care system towards a dynamic, patient-centered and team-based model of care for the 21st century and beyond.
Companies participating in the P&I EXPO and sponsors will take advantage of a 40 to 1 opportunity ratio; meaning there are approximately 40 attendees for every one participating exhibiting company. At that rate, this one-day EXPO provided each of the 56 exhibiting companies in 2016 with an intimate showcase. Don’t miss your chance to join us for 2018, with the urgency in continuing CHCs rapid patient growth and health reform implementation, this show is growing.
NACHC is committed to keeping our exhibit costs contained, by providing you with a booth package that includes many necessary exhibit services and booth equipment therefore keeping additional fees to a minimum.
