Advocacy.

Since 1995, the Health Professions Network has brought together groups and representatives from various health professions who were not included in policy-making discussions. With repeal & replacement of the Affordable Care Act at the top of congress’s priorities, this is a critical time in the nation’s history. The importance of inclusion and recognition of professionals has never been greater.

Where we've been, and where we're going.

When Health Professions Network visits a site for one of our two annual meetings, we bring association executives interested in bringing further meetings to the hotels, conference spaces, and venues in the area.

It's simple - these visits are a benefit to our members - and our members are a benefit to the sites we visit.

We've been to some pretty spectacular places - some that surprised us, and some that lived up to already high expectations.
