The Alliance for Health Policy’s annual Signature Series addresses the most challenging issues in health policy by convening cross-sector dialogues with experts in both policy and practice. Together, we critically examine these issues to identify what’s at stake, as well as key areas of challenge and opportunity.
Each year as part of the Series, the Alliance leverages our extensive network of experts and leaders to gather the best and brightest minds from across the health care industry. We challenge them to examine current barriers, highlight promising opportunities, and curate new ideas and approaches to tackle these topics. The resulting events take a unique look at intractable and emerging issues.
