    The 2023 Inland Northwest State of Reform Health Policy Conference will once again be taking place in-person at the Spokane Convention Center on September 14th, 2023! The State of Reform conference is focused on bridging the gap between health policy and political reality. Too often, those with good ideas for reforming healthcare don’t have a solid understanding of how the legislative process works. Those who understand politics don’t always comprehend the intricacies of the healthcare system. If you are interested in understanding what occurs at the nexus of health policy and politics, then this is the conference for you! Join us at the Spokane Convention Center on September 14th to discuss the most important healthcare activities taking place in Eastern Washington.
