Connexion Health Leader Conference
Last updated: November 2023
Social Health Connexion, often referred to as Connexion, is Health Union’s annual conference for Health Leaders. Connexion provides education, resources, and connections to help support and impact Health Leaders so they can learn and grow. During Connexion, we also announce and honor the winners of the Social Health Awards, where Health Union recognizes and celebrates the important work of Health Leaders.
Connexion is open to Health Leaders who are members of the Social Health Network. Not a member? Create an account now.
What is social health?
Social health is the dynamic, real-time actions people take to find meaningful connections and share information that impacts health journeys. It’s connecting with others, learning ways to communicate your story, and making an impact in healthcare.
Before 2020, Connexion was held in person in Philadelphia for our contracted Health Leaders. Since that time, the Connexion conference has been virtual. Whatever the format has been, Connexion continues to prioritize fostering connections, education, and growth each year.
In the past, we've had the pleasure of having speakers Nora McInerny, Tyler Campbell, Rebekah Taussig, and more. Our dynamic speakers have discussed important topics like:
- Medical gaslighting
- Managing patient burnout
- Using social media as a Health Leader
- Tapping into your self-worth
This year marked the Social Health Network's 7th annual Connexion conference, which was held July 25 and 26, 2023. We kicked off with a warm welcome from Health Union's Leadership Team.
Over 2 days, Connexion 2023 registrants had the opportunity to:
- Learn about health leadership, new techniques, and tools for online advocacy
- Plan advocacy goals
- Share experiences and engage with Health Leaders across nearly 50 condition communities and the Social Health Network
But that’s not all. For the first time, we announced a new, all-in-one certification program. The Patient Leader Certification Program will help take your Health Leader skills to the next level.
We wrapped up Connexion with the 2023 Social Health Awards ceremony, where we honored, recognized, and celebrated the work of Health Leaders across all condition areas and platforms.
