2020 Innovation Summit and Capitol Caucus


On June 4th PHA announced the 2020 Innovation Summit and Capitol Caucus would take place virtually on October 27th and 28th. The announcement highlighted this year's theme "Emerging Population Health Management Strategies in Our New Era of Health Care", the event's focus on presenting a fully interactive virtual conference setting, and the addition of a second day of education and networking with peers across the country.  
"We’re excited to offer the virtual format this year and maximize the unique ability to engage across the country and interact with some of our international membership and constituents. Further, the newly added second day affords the opportunity to move beyond the top-quality educational presentations PHA is known for, and dedicate time to make the kinds of direct connections across the spectrum of care that create successful population health partnerships.” said Jaan Sidorov MD, PHA President 
Join PHA's 2020 Virtual Innovation Summit and Capitol Caucus to engage in in-depth learning and direct discussions about urgent population health challenges and emerging solutions. See below for event information, registration, and sponsorship opportunities:
