Announcing the 2017 Hawaii State of Reform Health Policy Conference convening panel

The 2017 Hawaii State of Reform Health Policy conference will be coming to Honolulu on Jan. 12, 2017.

We are truly humbled by the outpouring of support from Hawaii’s plans, providers, agencies, and legislators in building this conference together. This is a pivotal time in Hawaii’s health care transformation, and we hope to provide the space to bring together thought leaders from all islands with key federal voices to push this conversation further than it’s gone before.

The first step to building our conferences is always bringing together the convening panel. This is the group of local experts that will help steer the ship, guiding us on to what topics are important to Hawaiian health care now.

You may see several familiar names, a few colleagues, and some connections that you have been meaning to make. We are honored to have this group of distinguished leaders from across the silos of health care put their names and voices behind us in making this conference great.
