NACHC invites individuals in the early stages of their professional career to participate in the Young Professional Leadership Exchange activities at this year’s Community Health Institute (CHI) & EXPO. With an expansive network of clinics and an ever-increasing patient population of more than 24 million, America’s Health Centers are now more than ever looking to the next generation of leaders to continue the mission of high-quality, cost-effective, and culturally-competent health care for all. Join other young professionals throughout the conference for various networking opportunities and educational sessions including a brand-new #CHCYP Hackathon that will speak to future challenges and opportunities to further the health center movement. Learn what skills and experiences to seek in order to advance your leadership potential while simultaneously networking and forming friendships with the next generation of health center leaders. Advocate for yourself, your career, and the health center movement by participating in this exciting new learning opportunity.
#1: The Inaugural #CHCYP Hackathon
Last year someone put in their CHI evaluation that the young professionals should do a health hack, and we thought that was a pretty cool idea. So, this year we are hosting the inaugural #CHCYP Hackathon. What is a hackathon? It’s an opportunity to come together with those who share your passion for a mission and work toward solving a broad problem with an eye toward the future. We’ll get together and work on a shared goal. Speed-networking will help you get to know your peers better, then you’ll hear from current health center leaders with experience driving this Movement forward and get to ask questions and get advice. Finally, you’ll build on your peers’ various talents and work in small teams to design the skills, experience, insight, and perspective that health center will needs for decades to come. Registration is limited to 50 individuals to keep this interactive and dynamic, so register today! Registration is FREE. This event will take place at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego on Saturday August 26th from 2-8PM.
#2: #CHCYP Track
Once again we’ve designed a comprehensive educational track at the CHI specifically for young professionals. You’ll get a sense of the current policy environment and how you can lead advocacy efforts in your states and communities as well as models for community health improvement and intergenerational work teams. You can find more information on the track in the CHI At-A-Glance here.
#3: #CHCYP Reception
After long days of learning, come join us for a drink on Sunday, August 27th from 6:30pm-8:00pm at Seasons 52, San Diego – Seaport District, 789 W. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA, (619) 702-0052.
