The National Council Conference is almost here! Starting Sunday, the nation’s premier specialty health care conference kicks off in Orlando, Florida. This year, the National Council is thrilled to be hosting thought leaders and innovators shaping the future of our field. Conference headliners include former Secretary of State General Colin Powell, health care reform expert Ezekiel Emanuel, and outspoken advocate Ashley Judd.

General Colin Powell will join Linda Rosenberg, National Council president and CEO, for an exciting conversation on the leadership and vision needed to be successful. A man of intelligence, versatility and presence, General Powell will share the lessons that shaped his life and career. He will provide insight on the leadership skills needed to transform regions and industries to allow them to truly flourish.

Ezekiel Emanuel is a master provocateur. “I hope to die at 75,” he wrote last October, making the case for death before being rendered. “Bring back the asylum,” he and two other bioethicists exhorted in an article published just last month. This week, Emanuel joins the National Council Conference to discuss the six “Megatrends” that will transform health care in the United States over the 10 to 15 years.  Join the conversation and be on the cutting edge of health care.

Ashley Judd has worn many hats in her career: wife framed for murder. Muse to Cole Porter. Member of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. She is also an avid Kentucky basketball fan, daughter of a mother who struggled with addition and a brave, outspoken trauma survivor.  When she joins the National Council in Orlando, she will share her personal experiences with depression, childhood trauma, her mother’s and family’s struggles with addiction and the need to expand America’s access to high-quality, effective treatment.

For these and many other reasons, NatCon15 is sure to be our best conference yet! We will you in sunny Florida!
