Multiple Chronic Conditions Resource Center is pleased to announce Federal Congresswoman Debbie Dingell as a speaker for the 2016 National Health Policy Conference March 31-April 2, 2016 in Savannah, GA. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell serves as the elected representative for Michigan’s 12th District in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is an active civic and community leader who is nationally recognized as an advocate for women and children. Her influence includes successfully fighting to have women included in federally-funded health research and promoting greater awareness of women’s health related issues directly.
Dingell is a founder and past chair of the National Women’s Health Resource Center and the Children's Inn at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dingell has invested countless hours advocating children’s rights, including service on the board of Michigan’s Children, the only statewide independent voice working to ensure that public policies are made in the best interest of children from cradle to career.
Dingell is one of several keynote conference speakers who will address the influence and impact from health policy on clinical practice and patient-centered outcomes. Additional topics include Value vs. Volume reimbursement and the approaching population based payment system, economics of prevention and the interface between policy and practice.
“We are excited to hear from Congresswoman Dingell to be a Keynote Speaker at the National Health Policy & Clinical Practice Conference this spring. She will discuss the recent essay published in the Harvard Policy Journal on Aging in America. Her perspectives will provide the attendees with timely information in the new era of value and quality measurement,” says Dr. Kim Kuebler, Director of Multiple Chronic Conditions Resource Center.
