Purpose Statement

The American Academy of Nursing (Academy) is envisioning its future through the power of courageous transformations. This conference will explore the importance of virtual health, community-based partnerships, and the economic value of nursing to advance the goal of attaining a more equitable future. 

With a focus on leadership strategies to enact systemic change and promote well-being, attendees will hear from interprofessional thought leaders in policy and practice who will share key health equity interventions that will transform how health care is paid for, provided, and received.
