AHCJ’s first conference in the Mountain States will take place at the Grand Hyatt in downtown Denver. Join hundreds of your peers for what has become the world’s most important gathering and training event in health care journalism.
Take part in dozens of workshops, panel sessions and roundtable discussions featuring some of the best minds in medicine, health policy, research, public health and business. Sign up for educational field trips and the annual Freelance PitchFest.
Visit with exhibitors who can provide new story resources. With a great hotel rate, the lowest registration fees in journalism training and the chance to network with newsmakers and news gatherers, you can’t afford to miss this conference!
Our spotlight speakers include Louis W. Sullivan, M.D., who served as HHS secretary from 1989 to 1993 and was the founding dean and first president of Morehouse School of Medicine, and Paul A. Offit, M.D., chief of the division of infectious diseases and director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Sullivan is author of "Breaking Ground: My Life in Medicine," due out just before the conference. Offit is the author of several books including "Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All" (2011), and "Do You Believe in Magic? The Sense and Nonsense of Alternative Medicine" (2013).
Welcoming the attendees to Colorado during the conference kickoff will be Gov. John Hickenlooper, who describes himself as a "recovering geologist now on loan to public service."
