by U.S. Medicine

October 22, 2009

WASHINGTON—The Military Health System will hold the 2010 Military Health System Conference from January 25-28, 2010 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. The theme of the conference is “Sharing Knowledge: Achieving Breakthrough Performance.”

“The 2010 MHS Conference is a chance for us to embrace the challenge of evolving as a learning organization,” said Ellen P. Embrey, who is performing the duties of the assistant secretary of defense for health affairs. “We are constantly seeking to enhance our health care delivery. The conference provides a platform to share knowledge and improve best practices. Our health care, medical research, and medical education and training positively impact the daily lives of millions of service members, veterans and their families.”

Three thousand military and civilian medical personnel from the MHS are expected to attend, creating an opportunity to share knowledge and improve best practices. As a learning organization, the MHS expects its 2010 conference to promote professionalism across the force, enhance partnerships within and outside the federal sector, and focus on ways to best serve the preventive and health-care needs of our diverse beneficiary population.

The conference will include both internal and external/industry exhibitors whose missions have a focus that is aligned with the MHS mission. Registration information and exhibitor opportunities are available online at www.health.mil/mhsconference. Further conference details can be found on the Military Health System Web site at www.health.mil/mhsconference.
