Trustee Track

The Leadership Summit offers trustees a new track of programming to connect the work of governance to the challenges of delivery system transformation.  The Summit’s Trustee Track will provide one-on-one opportunities for board members to dive deeper into emerging trends and best practices with governance and health care experts.  Through peer-to-peer learning forums board members will gain practical ideas to help them foster improved health and outcomes for the communities they serve. 

The track’s flexible programming allows trustees to attend Summit sessions and engage with experts and peers.  Governance specialist Jamie Orlikoff will serve as the navigator for trustees throughout the track, facilitating translation of the critical issues addressed at the Summit to best practices for boards.
