Please join me virtually June 23-24, 2021 for the annual conference of the New England Society for Healthcare Communications. Our 2021 conference theme is RE: What’s Next For Healthcare Marketing? It has been a challenging year and together we will address and examine some of the most important issues facing healthcare marketers. With sessions focused on resilience, reframing, revising, reconnecting, and recharging, you’ll be prepared to successfully navigate the healthcare landscape ahead. If you weren’t aware, I am the current president of the NESHCo Board and a big supporter of the organization!
The lineup of speakers is phenomenal: Nick Adkins (@Nickisnpdx) #Pinksocks founder), Rasu Shrestha (@RasuShrestha), Zeev Neuwirth (@ZeevNeuwirth), Leon Caldwell (@ActiveScholar), and more. These are speakers you usually see keynoting national conferences who are giving their time to support NESHCo and our members!
One of the sessions I am most excited about is being led by Mercedes Avila, PhD, MSW, MED, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine. She will be address health equity and inclusion. The title of her presentation is “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Strategies for Healthcare Organizations.” Dr. Avila will share insights from her work in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, having trained more than 10,000 providers across 27 states and 150+ organizations )hospital, community health centers, etc.). Among other topics, she will address social justice in healthcare, health disparities, culturally responsive care and practice, social determinants of health, and racial equity. I’ve spoken with Dr. Avila on a couple of occasions and I can guarantee that this presentation will be phenomenal!
The evening of June 22, Jeff Steblea and I will host a virtual cocktail reception – something for which we are well qualified! (Jeff actually has a certificate in Tiki bartending.) When you register for the conference, be sure to confirm that you’ll be attending out tiki cocktails reception!
