About the APHA Summits

Each year since 2011, The Alliance of Professional Health Advocates has sponsored events with the sole purpose of growing the profession of independent health and patient advocacy.

The intent is fairly simple. That is, by growing the profession, we can meet the even bigger goal of improving health-related and medical outcomes for patients throughout the United States and Canada.

In previous years, these events focused on the “how to’s” of running a business: financial, legal, insurance, marketing, pricing, and more.  While they helped prepare new advocates to venture out into the world of the self-employed, they have not supported the networking needs of advocates who are already succeeding in business, who want to connect with others, and who can support those who are newer in the field.

Thus these Summits; a grand combination of those “how-to’s,” along with networking and support opportunities for advocates new and experienced.
