An Invitation from the
NAO Conference Planning Committee Co-Chairs

On behalf of the National AHEC Organization, we hope you are planning to attend the 2018 NAO Biennial Conference in Washington, D.C. from July 8 to 11, 2018.

AHEC on the Hill:
Diversity, Distribution and Practice Transformation

The theme follows the goals in our new federal grant making this conference timely for our AHEC national network of 260+ centers and 49 program offices based in communities in 43 states.

Conference Activities

The NAO Conference Planning committee has worked diligently to put together a dynamic, comprehensive, and highly practical agenda which includes keynote addresses and plenary sessions with national leaders in health care, concurrent and poster sessions with skilled presenters, as well as a New Director Orientation session, and other small-group activities and committee meetings. Monday evening, July 9th, we will kick off the conference with our NAO Awards Ceremony on the Odyssey Harbor Cruise on the Potomac River.

We are certain you will leave this conference excited, energized, and ready to put into practice what you learned when you get home.

Odyssey Harbor Cruise

Arlington, Virginia and Washington, D.C. offer so many exciting, unique, and interesting activities for you and your family to enjoy. Monuments and memorials, free museums, eclectic neighborhoods full of local flavor – the nation’s capital truly is America’s front yard! For ideas of what to do and places to eat while in the area, check out the Arlington and Washington, D.C. Visitors Bureaus. The Crystal Gateway Marriott concierge will also be glad to help you plan adventures during your stay.

Don’t forget to book a tour of the U.S. Capitol through the offices of your Congressional Representatives or Senators when scheduling your Hill Visits!

We look forward to visiting with you during the conference. Please accept our deepest thanks for your hard work and diligence in working to advance the AHEC and National AHEC Organization mission!

Conference Co-Chairs,
