This conference is always filled with health leaders and our active presence provided a great opportunity to highlight our work to thought leaders and funders from throughout the state.  This conference is particularly timely as it is held just prior to the January 11th start of the legislative session.  

Take a look at Kristen's panel presentation below.

2015 Inland Northwest State of Reform Conference

The 2015 Inland Northwest State of Reform Conference is off to a fantastic start!  EHF is proud to sponsor the one-day conference again this year, as it brings together local and state leaders to foster open, cross-sector dialogue about the changing healthcare landscape in Eastern Washington.  As the most diverse convening of senior healthcare leaders in our region, the Conference is a great opportunity to break down barriers and develop a better understanding of the political and practical realities of healthcare reform.
