MAKING SENSE OF CHANGE
What does a new Congress, a new crop of governors, new industry players, and innovative and disruptive technologies mean for health care? The #NHPC19 offers a first look at health policy in 2019.

TIMELY AND RELEVANT TOPICS
The #NHPC19 program leaves no stone unturned, featuring important health policy discussions on topics such as the opioid epidemic, rural health, tackling health care cost and coverage, Medicare expansion, health equity, and more.

DYNAMIC PRESENTATION FORMATS
Featuring main stage and breakout sessions, rapid fire and poster presentations, and policy roundtables, the #NHPC19 offers you new opportunities to engage on the most important health policy topics of today.

RATIONAL AND INFORMED DISCUSSIONS
In our increasingly hyper-partisan and tribal political environment, the #NHPC19 sets itself apart with reasoned and balanced debate on today's immediate health policy priorities - informed by real evidence and the latest research.

DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES
A BIG tent conference, the #NHPC19 brings together individuals from all aspects of the health care industry and the health policy process, including government officials and members of Congress, health care decision makers, researchers, clinicians, patients, advocates, and students - future health policy champions.
