Bringing the Health Services Research Community Together Virtually 

In June 2021, health services researchers, policy analysts, clinicians and community members using evidence and data to transform health and health care will once again convene virtually for the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM). 

An important annual milestone for the community, the ARM is AcademyHealth’s biggest and most popular meeting of the year, offering an irreplaceable forum for connection, recognition, reflection, learning and professional networking opportunities.

A Virtual Success in 2020

In 2020, nearly 2,000 individuals came together at our first ever virtual ARM. Attendees benefited from engaging with their peers, sharing diverse perspectives, and highlighting the continued need for timely, evidence-based policies to transform health care.

In 2021, we are improving the virtual ARM experience by:  

  1. Offering even MORE live and pre-recorded breakout sessions, enjoyed both during the four days of the event and/or on your own time.
  2. Providing additional networking activities and creating professional engagement opportunities across the event.
  3. Having additional live plenary presentations from the leading experts on timely topics – with real-time interactions through chats and Q&A.
  4. The addition of AcademyHealth Interest Group meetings, career development, methods and data seminars or workshops during the live event.
