Physician leaders must represent both clinical and management interests. Those new to the role are often challenged to move beyond their clinical expertise as they are asked to problem solve, lead their clinical colleagues, and manage needed change in a rapidly evolving health care environment.
The COVID-19 pandemic has altered life for everyone. Based on your feedback, combined with the current guidance surrounding large gatherings, WHA has developed a complete educational event for physicians and their hospital leadership. The Physician Leader Learning Day (March 12, 2021/Virtual) and the Physician Knowledge Sharing Event (September 14 & 15, 2021/In-person) will offer CME-certified education focused on developing leadership skills, as well as providing a forum for discussion, networking, and collegiality.
Mark your calendar now for WHA’s Advocacy Day 2021, scheduled for Wednesday, April 14. This year, WHA has contracted with the professional virtual event platform, LeaderPass, to deliver this event to advocates across the state virtually.
While the day will be a little different in the virtual format, attendees can still expect to hear from great line-up of speakers, including opening keynote Frank Sesno. Sesno is an internationally-recognized journalist with more than 30 years of experience reporting from around the world. Well-known as a television anchor, White House correspondent and talk show host with CNN, he is also a nationally-renowned moderator who has engaged some of the world’s leading personalities.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with their legislators and/or their staff virtually, and are encouraged to do so. Specific times, in 30-minutes intervals, are set aside on April 14, 15, and 16 for these meetings. WHA will take care of the scheduling and will inform advocates of their meeting date and time, along with virtual instructions to join the meeting.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still underfoot, it has never been more important for you and your teams to participate in Advocacy Day and let your voice be heard!
