The National Symposium on Health Law and Policy is a one-day conference focusing on the major business, legal, and policy issues impacting health care in the coming year.

Join other senior-level individuals at hospital and health systems, post-acute and long-term care companies, medical groups and other providers to network, gain access to proprietary research, and hear from industry leaders about the latest trends and developments in health care.

Health Law and Policy Survey

Gain Access to Proprietary Research

Leading up to the National Symposium on Health Law and Policy, we asked invitees and other senior leaders to participate in a survey analyzing the latest issues impacting health care.

We will reveal the results at the event and will provide attendees and survey respondents a detailed analysis of the
results following the launch.

For a sneak peek at the insights you can expect to hear at the Symposium, we asked our featured speakers for their thoughts on the major issues impacting health law and policy in the coming year. See what they had to say:
