This year’s theme, Change Agents for Patient Health, will offer attendees an opportunity to network and exchange best practices with other leaders in the nonprofit patient group community. 

A dynamic agenda with speakers who will focus on leadership, being a catalyst for change, building and driving momentum, and taking action, is taking shape! Announced speakers include:
