Student Members Attend KAHCE Annual Meeting, KHA Convention

Attending the KAHCE Annual Meeting and the KHA Convention as a student or early careerist provides great insight into current healthcare challenges and allows students to connect with local healthcare leaders. Below are some testimonies from students who attended this year.

"Attending my first KHA convention exposed me to many great experiences.  I was able to interact with healthcare leaders in a variety of roles across Kansas.  Additionally, I had the opportunity to attend various lectures and panel discussions on current and future trends in healthcare.  As a student, the KHA convention allowed me to build my network and provided me incredible educational experiences that I will never forget."

"Please allow me a moment to express my gratitude for the recent KHA conference.  The renowned speakers were a highlight of this fascinating event.  In particular, Shawn Achor who presented on The Happiness Advantage was especially noteworthy.  I am also thankful for the numerous people I met who provided me some incredible insight as I discern my post-graduation career."

"As a future healthcare executive, I would like to thank you all for the great time I had at the KAHCE Annual Meeting.  Attending the conference sed a light on KAHCE's role in Population Health implementation.  Every healthcare executive would like to succeed in providing consumers with population health delivery - better health of a defined population with a lower cost.  It was a great opportunity to network with healthcare executives and a good platform to expand my knowledge on public health issues.  I am looking forward to the next KAHCE event."
