NCHL Events

Join us for the 2018 Human Capital Investment Conference, The Arriving Future, at the Embassy Suites Magnificent Mile Chicago and the Gail L. Warden Leadership Excellence Award dinner at the Chicago Cultural Center held November 13-14. This highly regarded event brings together senior executives from leading US healthcare systems, health sector firms, health policy leaders, and researchers. The event begins on Tuesday afternoon with thought leaders who will explore ways to improve competencies and create a workforce that is adaptive to healthcare disruptions while using evidence- and fact- based perspectives. It is imperative that we lead across our organizations to meet the ever-changing needs of our communities.

The 2018 Gail L. Warden Leadership Excellence Award dinner will be held on Tuesday evening at the Chicago Cultural Center, to honor a healthcare leader whose commitment, values, and contributions have improved the health of the public through leadership and organizational excellence.

The event continues on Wednesday morning with sessions that showcase best practices of leading healthcare organizations that use evidence-informed approaches to address topics including community health improvement, diversity and equity, leadership competencies that drive the mission of the organization, innovation, and the development of future leaders to transform healthcare.
