 June 17-19 in Cleveland, OH

Hospital and health system leaders are coming together to look at diversity, inclusion, community health, and health equity through one lens, sharing innovative strategies and new tools to tackle tough challenges — and boldly transform how communities and populations experience health and care.

By working together, the goal of becoming a society of healthy communities where all individuals reach their highest potential for health is possible. We can focus on strategies to redesign health care with a better understanding of the social and structural factors that impact health and are the root cause of illness. We can more seamlessly connect that care with community resources via enhanced partnerships to support individuals and families in the manner that is most meaningful to them and produces the highest quality of care. And we can improve the well-being of our communities via place-based strategies to support a healthy ecosystem by addressing the fundamental inequities that continue to translate into dramatic differences in outcomes. Join us to be part of the conversation and collaboration to boldly transform how communities and populations experience health and care
