For some, the health system works perfectly. For many others, it doesn't. The Health System Forum, presented by the Waters Center for Systems Thinking, will create the space for important conversations about the current state of the health system and how systems thinking can help create a more inclusive, productive system with better outcomes for all.

It’s not often that key stakeholders from all parts of the system come together. When this happens, meaningful dialogue and change take shape. Join us for this unique opportunity that will surface important perspectives from members throughout the health system. #BetterTogether

If you are interested in the Forum, but cannot attend due to a time conflict or can only attend part of the day, please register as usual using the registration form. We will be releasing recordings after the event and will send you a toolkit.
