2021 Annual Leadership Summit

September 22-23, 2021
Denver, Colorado

Join us for our premier annual event and connect with healthcare leaders and professionals from across the country: in-person or virtually!

Together, we will exchange information and knowledge regarding best practices, learn about the latest industry tools, research and trends, and hear from visionaries and experts. We will also unpack the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact to the healthcare ecosystem and the care process and take a deep-dive into its impact on Latino communities.

COVID-19 Safety Information

While participating in events held or sponsored by the National Association of Latino Healthcare Executives and/or the National Forum for Latino Healthcare Executives, (“NALHE”), consistent with CDC guidelines, participants are encouraged to practice hand hygiene, “social distancing” and wear face coverings to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, NALHE has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at the Leadership Summit event in Denver, CO including requiring everyone attending on site to wear a mask and to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination at the registration booth. However, NALHE cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.
