Join WHA in Washington, D.C., April 25-26 for AHA Annual Meeting
WHA invites its members to join fellow Wisconsin hospital and health system leaders at the upcoming American Hospital Association (AHA) Annual Meeting April 25-26 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C. While the last two annual meetings have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AHA is planning to hold this one in-person, and WHA will again be in attendance.
The AHA Annual Meeting provides insightful programming and offers a great opportunity for networking and connecting with key decision makers on Capitol Hill on issues important to Wisconsin hospitals and health systems. In addition, WHA hosts several Wisconsin-specific events during the meeting, including a luncheon issues briefing, a members-only dinner, and WHA-scheduled Hill visits with Wisconsin’s members of Congress.
WHA’s issues luncheon and member dinner will be held on Monday, April 25, followed by a Capitol Hill lobby day on Tuesday, April 26. This is a great opportunity to share personal stories about how your hospital fits into the bigger picture of important federal health care policies. WHA briefs attendees on issues and facilitates all Hill meetings on members’ behalf. With everything hospitals have been through over the last two years of the pandemic, there has perhaps never been a more important time for federal elected officials to hear directly from their hospital leaders.
Those interested in attending this year’s meeting can sign up on WHA's webpage or contact WHA Vice President of Federal and State Relations Jon Hoelter with questions. Visit AHA’s website for more details and registration information for AHA-specific programming.
