#NASHPCONF19 is designed by state health policy makers for state health policy makers to explore the most up-to-date health care developments and initiatives in the United States. With 25+ thoughtfully-crafted sessions addressing the issues most important to you, as well as full day pre-conferences that offer a deep dive into targeted topics, you’ll gain critical insights into the latest advances, changes, programs, and innovations in state health policy.


Our conference offers non-stop opportunities to network with hundreds of state health policy leaders from across the country. Join conference roundtables to discuss best practices and solutions to pressing issues with a small group of your peers, attend the networking breakfast or Blueberry Break to socialize with colleagues, or mix business with pleasure at our two evening events!

Conference speakers will address a host of topics covering current and important issues, including health care costs, workforce, chronic care, stabilizing the individual market, social determinants of health and much more!
