NRHI’s Annual National Affordability Summit

Register today for in-person attendance | Can’t make it to D.C.? Join us via live stream 

Everyday we hear about the impact that rising healthcare costs have on the nation, communities, and individuals. For example, a recent survey indicated that 44% of Americans didn’t see a physician last year when they were sick or injured due to high healthcare costs. NRHI’s first National Affordability Summit explored the question of why healthcare costs so much and what we can do about it. This event will dig deeper – exploring how three key issues − health, price, & waste − influence the affordability of healthcare. We will highlight regional success stories from those who are working to impact affordability in their markets.

When: October 4, 2018

Where: Washington, DC

Hotel block information available upon receipt of registration confirmation. Closest airports include Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport
