• The National Health Policy Conference

    Just a quick note of endorsement for AcademyHealth’s National Health Policy Conference. It’ll be held this year on February 4-5 in Washington, D.C. Though I cannot attend this year, I did last year and found it well worth my time. Some of this year’s speakers are:

    • Aman Bhandari, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
    • David Blumenthal, The Commonwealth Fund
    • Farzad Mostashari, Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology
    • Charles Ornstein, Association of Health Care Journalists
    • Uwe Reinhardt, Princeton University
    • Alice Rivlin, Brookings Institution
    • Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

    Disclosure: I am compensated to write for the AcademyHealth blog several times a month. I also serve on the planning committee for its Translation and Dissemination Institute. However, I would do none of those things if I didn’t believe in its mission. I am not being compensated for this endorsement because I don’t do that. This one’s on me.
