Health Policy Academy

Since 1992, the Alliance for Health Policy has provided policymaker staff with education on the basics of health care policy.

The Health Policy Academy is the hallmark of the Alliance’s educational mission. Through daylong conferences and “101” programming throughout the year, educational events under the Health Policy Academy help get policymaker staff up to speed on policies, concepts, nuances of political conversations.

Sustained funding would allow for more programming across a variety of formats; networking and rapport building amongst next-generation policymakers; expanding educational events for the media, other stakeholders, and the general public; briefings around cabinet confirmations; and other opportunities.
