Trustee Webinars Focus on Healthcare Trends and Advocacy Strategies

Recent media headlines declare hospitals are in reasonably good shape financially due to pandemic funding, Medicare and insurer overpayments and price-gauging. While hospital leaders have data proving extreme financial pressures, the cumulative effect of this press is confusion and distrust of hospitals. The MHA Board Governance Education webinar series will provide examples of how to share facts and be an effective advocate on financial viability and other areas.

The April 19 webinar outlines the trends affecting current and future strategic plans, the May 9 webinar teaches trustees techniques for effectively communicating with stakeholders on key issues and the May 23 webinar discusses ways to build trust and engagement within the community. All webinars are from noon to 1 p.m. EST and members can register for one or all three webinars.

The series is generously sponsored by HPS, an associate member of the MHA and free of charge to MHA members.

Members with questions about registration should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
