We are at full capacity for the fall Health Policy Orientation. If you are interested in being placed on a waitlist for the next Orientation, please fill out this brief form.

A Deep Dive into Health Policy


This fall, the Health Policy Orientation will be held in-person in Washington, D.C. Attendees will pull back the curtain on the policymaking process and receive person-to-person instruction and insight from some of the leading health policy experts and figures in the field. 

Policy literacy is important when engaging stakeholders, but it is not an impossible skill to pick up. If you’ve told yourself this is the year that you’ll get more involved in health policy, attending the Orientation is a great way to start, and D.C. is the place to be. 

The in-person Orientation will be capped at 50 participants to encourage collaboration, interaction, and networking among participants and esteemed faculty. Once 50 participants are registered, all additional registrants will be added to a waitlist. 

This will be a mask and vaccine-required event. All attendees, speakers, and staff must be fully vaccinated two weeks prior to the meeting date to participate and are required to wear a mask for all indoor activities at the Orientation, except while actively eating and drinking. All attendees must show proof of vaccination and complete a health survey via the CLEAR app. For more information, visit our Health and Safety Protocols page.
