Healthcare Collaborative

About the Healthcare Collaborative

What is the Association Forum Healthcare Collaborative?

An interdisciplinary community of healthcare associations and stakeholders convened to identify pressing issues to address in common, opposed to individually.

Healthcare Collaborative Background

Why Association Forum?

Association Forum is a membership organization for associations located in Chicago, IL. Chicago represents the largest concentration of healthcare and medical association in the world. We believe that a clear majority of all healthcare professionals and companies will be a powerful vehicle to affect change and influence over a dynamic and transformative future ahead for the industry. By working together, we are more likely to succeed.
