About the EventThe Washington Representatives Retreat is an annual National Health Council (NHC) event where patient organizations and partners of patient organizations have an opportunity to discuss policy developments, hear from prominent speakers, provide input in the developing of the NHC’s legislative priorities, and network with public policy and government relations professionals from patient advocacy groups and nonprofit organizations. 

Who Should AttendThis is a member-only event open to NHC Patient Organizations and Partners of Patient Organizations — specifically policy and government relations staff — and event sponsors. NHC Patient Organizations (formerly Voluntary Health Associations) and Partners of Patient Organizations (formerly Professional Membership Associations and Nonprofit Organizations with an Interest in Health) are encouraged to attend.
