Join the #AHIPInstitute conversation with these health care social media ambassadors before and during the conference to provoke thought leadership, get answers to tough questions, or just say hi.

Who are AHIP’s 2017 social media ambassadors?

Our social media ambassadors represent perspectives ranging from the physician, to health care disruptor, to health policy wonk, and health care executive. Each ambassador is a seasoned, tech-savvy social media thought leader with a history of attending AHIP conferences as either an attendee or a speaker so you can be assured they know the ins-and-outs of what AHIP conferences have to offer.

What can you expect to see before, during, and after the conference?

The ambassadors will be sharing their industry perspectives and looking for others to join in on the conversation. You can expect to see everything from reactions to thought-provoking sessions, to live interviews with speakers and attendees. Be sure to follow our ambassadors for a true behind-the-scenes look only they can provide.
