Join the National Health Council (NHC) for its 2023 Science of Patient Engagement Symposium on May 8, 2023, from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET, our first in-person Symposium since 2019! Taking place at the historic National Press Club in Washington, DC, the theme for this year is Patient Empowerment in the Digital Health Era, and will focus on digital technologies, the science of patient engagement, and health equity.

Due to recent innovations and uptake in digital health, it is more important than ever to include the patient voice in research. Sessions will explore telehealth and the digital divide, medical device development and technology design, artificial intelligence, and more.

The Science of Patient Engagement Symposium is an annual event where research leaders convene to share their experiences, accomplishments, best practices, and resulting translational impacts on the science of patient engagement.

Attending the Science of Patient Engagement Symposium will enable you to:

  1. Understand the applicability of patient engagement research into action and practice in the digital age.
  2. Illustrate the importance of health equity integration into patient engagement research.
  3. Identify synergistic research opportunities between scientists and patient advocacy groups.
  4. Exchange innovative and thought-provoking research ideas and agendas.
