VAHHS Annual Meeting: Forward Together

September 23 - 24, 2021

The Vermont Association of Hospitals and Health Systems 2021 Annual Meeting will be held virtually on September 23 - 24.

Please register for the meeting via Whova and the Zoom link will be sent before the opening of the event.
The keynote speaker will be Aron Ralston, outdoorsman and mechanical engineer known for cutting off his own arm to survive a hiking accident.

Aron will relate how his canyon entrapment and self-rescue is evidence of how we can overcome our own “boulders.”

The program will also feature:

  • retrospectives on our COVID response, including a conversation with Vermont policy leaders
  • the premier of a mini-documentary about COVID-19 in Vermont in 2020 and 2021
  • a program on promoting resilience and reducing burnout among health care providers
  • a presentation by Dr. Mercedes Avila, who was keynote speaker for our virtual 2020 conference
  • a visit from producing director Bess O’Brien, who will have just wrapped up the tour of the Listen Up Project, an original musical inspired, created and performed by Vermont teens through a multi-year health outreach program.

More details about the agenda and activities will be shared in coming days and weeks.
