Event Description

The George Washington University MHA Alumni Association and the National Capital Healthcare Executives (NCHE), in collaboration with the Milken Institute School of Public Health Department of Health Policy & Management, invite you to join us in-person and/or online for our 32nd Annual Gibbs Oration, 16th Annual Coile Lecture, and 20th Annual Young Alumni Speaker, as well as a special session on resiliency.

The Gibbs Oration and Coile Lecture were established to honor two great leaders of the GW MHA program and the health care industry. Generous philanthropic support from alumni, faculty, and friends helps maintain these annual lectures and steward Fred Gibbs's and Russ Coile's legacies for future generations to come. 

This all-day event brings together national health care leaders, GW alumni, students, and faculty, NCHE members, and friends for robust conversations about the current state of health care and what the industry's future holds. Guests have the option of attending in-person and/or via Zoom. 

Hear from a slate of esteemed speakers and connect with fellow healthcare leaders and rising stars throughout the day. Thanks to the support of the National Capital Healthcare Executives, attendees will have the chance to earn three (3) ACHE Qualified Credits and 1.5 ACHE Face-to-Face Credits.
