Learn First-Hand How the Obama Administration and New Congress will Address Health Care Reform

Registration is now open for the National Health Policy Conference (NHPC), hosted by AcademyHealth and Health Affairs. The conference, held February 2-3, 2009 in Washington, D.C., is your first post-inaugural opportunity to hear about health care reform from new and returning administrators and policymakers. Leading experts including government officials, academics, policy analysts, and researchers will convene and provide their perspectives on what the key health policy issues will be for the nation in 2009. Attendees will have the opportunity to shape the discussion in breakout sessions highlighting health care reform's impact on the public and private sector, the tools needed for change, and the benefits for consumers.

Registration information and conference details are available on the NHPC Web site.
