  1. Advise the Board of Directors and AcademyHealth leadership on the priorities and trends in the educational needs of our members and the field of HSR;
  2. Inform the planning, development, implementation, review, and evaluation of existing and new member benefits, programs, and services that are responsive to the education needs of our members and the needs of those providing training and education to our members; and
  3. Facilitate collaboration among the Education Council and other AcademyHealth Councils, AcademyHealth members and the Board on AcademyHealth’s activities related to education.
