What to Expect

2024 Connect Schedule

Our time in Nashville is designed to share new ideas, connect with old and new friends, and focus on the future. We’ve built the schedule to illuminate insights and inspire opportunities through candid, peer-to-peer conversations on key issues animating C-suites and boardrooms—health care policy, AI, drug pricing, health equity, commercial risk, and more. Our goal is for you to leave these discussions better equipped to affect real strategic change in your organization and beyond. The 2024 Connect agenda will focus on the top prospects for meaningful change, including discussion topics such as: 

  • Health Care After the Elections: Policy Priorities for the Next Four Years
  • High-Cost, High-Value Care: Adopting (and Affording) the New Wave of Therapeutics
  • Whom Can You Trust?: Navigating the Intersection of AI and Misinformation
  • Health Care Under Attack: Leading through—and Learning from—Cybersecurity Crises
  • The Employer Resurgence: New Strategies to Advance Affordability, Accessibility, and Equity
  • Spotlight on Women’s Health: New Research, Investments, and Care Models
  • From Pledge to Action: Lessons from Leading Health Equity Champions
  • The Quest for Commercial Risk: Discoveries on How to Unlock Win-Win Arrangements
