It is a unique and somewhat intimate setting, allowing all attendees involved in different aspects of communications (digital media, social media, corporate communications, public relations, patient relations, and others)  to facilitate important connections and expand their knowledge base together.

Testimonials

What our past delegates have said

I appreciated the opportunity to gather with peers and discuss the hot-topic issues of our profession and our sector. I think the group thoroughly listed the top-of-mind concerns facing our profession thereby providing an excellent road map for future gatherings.
The event was great. I learned a lot from like-minded organizations and from some of my peers from other hospitals. It was great to hear what people are working on and how they’ve achieved success.

This event provided the space to conduct very niche, relevant, and stimulating discussions in the realm of health care communications. I haven’t seen an opportunity for this type of knowledge sharing before, and would definitely attend again!
