Save the Date for the 2019 GIH Fall Forum 

Mark your calendar to attend the GIH Fall Forum from November 7-8, 2019 in Washington, DC! Each fall, GIH offers programming designed for funders with a strong interest in health policy. These meetings, collectively known as the Fall Forum, are an excellent opportunity for funders with a strong interest in health policy to get up-to-speed on current issues, interact with leading thinkers, and connect with their grantmaking peers. The first day of the Fall Forum will explore effective ways to bring health care directly to patients using approaches that transcend traditional clinical models. In addition, Professor Katie M. Keith, a faculty member and researcher at Georgetown University and Health Affairs contributing editor, will deliver the seventh annual Lauren LeRoy Health Policy Lecture. The second day of the Fall Forum will explore innovative approaches to using data to advance health equity, promote community engagement, and drive policy change.
