The event will bring together health care leaders from all the islands and the federal government to discuss critical next steps in Hawaii’s health care transformation. A conference should be more than just a sharing of ideas; it should empower attendees with strategies that further their own visions of reform. This January, State of Reform aims to drive the conversation further than it has gone before through a convening panel of local experts who will help select our panel topics. In every state State of Reform is in, we strive to bring this policy-agnostic, cross-siloed approach. We hope you will join us this Jan. 12, 2017 as we continue to connect the dots in health care in Hawaii.
