About NHC Membership

The National Health Council (NHC) is a stakeholder-informed, patient-focused organization that forges consensus among diverse organizations and drives patient-centered health policy.

It is the diversity of our more than 140 members that enables us to create a collaborative environment and put forward consensus public policy solutions that keep the patient central to all we do.

The NHC delivers a wide range of member services, including meetings and conferences, action teams, affinity groups, webinars, and projects to engage with us and network with each other.

Patient advocacy members meet the NHC Standards of Excellence®, demonstrating the highest degree of accountability and transparency.
