When I came to PHA in 1999, one of the first things that struck me was the excitement about our International Conference. It was easy to understand why when I had the chance to attend the June 2000 Chicago Conference. Given the amount of work to produce these very special events, the reason PHA hosts them every two years, instead of annually, also became clear.
That 24 month gap led to a dream by board members. It was that PHA would someday be able to produce annual regional Conferences, events where people wouldn't have to travel as far to receive the valuable education and networking opportunities that such meetings offer.
It took almost a decade but in 2009, PHA had grown to the point where we were able to make the dream a reality. The vehicle we created is PHA on the Road…the patient component of PHA’s Medical Education Program.
Between 2009 and 2012, PHA on the Road has allowed PHA to bring internationally recognized medical professionals and other experts to 12 cities for not-to-be-missed (and fun) day-long conferences.
This year, PHA is organizing four Regional PHA on the Road Conferences…
- Denver, Colorado – June 1, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Denver Convention Center
- Boston, Massachusetts – June 8, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge
- Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina – June 15, 2013 at the Durham Convention Center
- San Francisco, California – at the Crowne Plaza Foster City/San Mateo
Registration is FREE and includes continental breakfast and lunch. While registration is still open for all four meetings, space is limited - so register soon! Childcare is complimentary (but your child must be pre-registered). PHA is glad to answer any questions you may have about this exciting program...we look forward to seeing you on the Road!
