Independent Patient and Health Care Advocate Education Sessions

At the Healthcare Advocate Summit, September 3-6, 2024


Join us this year in our second annual collaboration between the Coalition of Health Care Advocacy Organizations (CHCAO) and the Healthcare Advocate Summit, bringing together Independent Advocates and Professionals from across the healthcare industry. The event offers a platform for growth and education, and provides important opportunities to explore strategies for scaling the profession, enhancing equity for patients and advocates, collaborating with stakeholders, and strengthening the Advocate community.

Last year, headlining presentations featured the The Critical Role of Patient And Health Care Advocates: A Special Report and highlighted advocates’ crucial role in care teams. Education sessions dove deep into specialized topics like implicit bias in healthcare, polypharmacy, veteran health advocacy, solo aging and innovative approaches to increase access to health advocacy. We will keep you updated here about what’s to come!

Join us this year in Las Vegas, NV this September 3-6, 2024, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas as we continue to build awareness for Independent Patient and Health Care Advocates and the important work they do.
