The board meeting took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City on October 25th and 26th, 2018.

In her presentation, Ms. DiStefano focused on the governmental issues, factors, drivers, and policies that are shaping the future and landscape of health & human services, and the upcoming issues to consider. The following panel addressed the growing role of healthcare consumerism and its current and future impact on employer health.
