Convince Your Boss to Send You to Health Action 2016

Regina Wise

Health Action Events and Data Manager

Our annual Health Action conference is the premier event for health care advocates, enrollment workers, and policy wonks to come together to talk strategy. Our action-packed conference will be the heart of advocacy for health reform in 2016. Next year will be particularly important for setting an agenda to increase access to health care for as many people as possible. 

Four reasons your boss should send you to Health Action 2016

Enrollment assisters, state advocates, national advocacy organizations, and health care and policy professionals are essential for reaching our shared goals of getting consumers enrolled in coverage and increased access to high-quality, affordable health care for all.

If you’re committed to these goals, you should convince your boss to let you attend Health Action 2016, which takes place February 4-6, 2016, in Washington, D.C. Use these reasons to sway your boss into sending you to this valuable conference.

  1. Health Action 2016 offers professional development. Families USA is known for hosting a plethora of engaging workshops that are tailored to your needs and will equip you with knowledge you can apply in your day-to-day work. These workshops focus on health equity, enrollment, Medicaid, health system transformation, private market, and building skills to better advocate for your cause.
  2. Health Action 2016 is a professional networking opportunity you can’t pass up. Meet the brightest minds in enrollment, state and national advocacy, and health policy to add to your network.
  3. You’ll come back to work even more energized. After hearing inspirational speakers, seeing other organizations’ successful campaigns, and participating in interactive workshops, you’ll remember why you do this work.
  4. Your whole organization will benefit from your attendance at Health Action 2016. Because you’re going to take advantage of trainings on outreach and enrollment strategies, gain tips for media interviews and story banking, and learn strategies for advocacy and social media promotion, you’ll be able to report back and hit the ground running for your organization’s 2016 projects.
