As one of the only events of its kind, the AcademyHealth National Health Policy Conference (NHPC) brings together health care decision makers, policy experts, advocates, consumers, patients, researchers, and leaders from the public and private sectors to share the latest evidence and discuss the most critical issues and immediate policy priorities in United States health care.

This two-day event puts policy insights and perspectives from diverse sectors of health and health care decision-making into context with the latest evidence and examples from science and practice. Join us at this year's NHPC to identify challenges, discuss solutions, and define the research needed to inform and evaluate policies to improve health and the performance of the health care system.
