Please join us on July 17th & 18th at the DoubleTree Hotel in Grand Junction for WHAAS 2024!

Our 2024 theme, “How the West Was Won” will showcase how WHA members have been pioneers in their rural communities, building health systems crucial to their sustainability. Through grit, collaboration, and commitment, our members have conquered many challenges.

In true western fashion, members have continuously been innovative in tackling obstacles and maintain the “can-do” attitude that was paramount for those that forged west so many years ago. Through blood, sweat, and tears (like the pioneers) WHA members have risen to the challenge and continue to lead the way for rural healthcare across the country.

So, grab your boots, wear your favorite pair of jeans, and come on down to WHAAS!

Purpose or Perish: How Deeper Meaning Leads to Greater Impact

Joshua M. Evans, Keynote Speaker

#1 Best Selling Author & TEDx Programmer

Our keynote presentation demonstrates the strength of having purpose in a world that can often make you feel less than inspired.

His presentation will help you wake up and rediscover true meaning in your work, to lead you on a path towards feeling personally and professionally fulfilled.

Just like those courageous pioneers, WHA members are trailblazers and WHAAS 2024 will be filled with member presentations on innovative ways in which they are solving problems and creating healthier communities.

Also slated to speak are regional and national healthcare experts who will present on current trends. WHA’s Corporate Partners will be exhibiting and on hand to answer questions throughout the event. And, most importantly, there will be plenty of time to network with each other during our Networking Reception, Peer Network Breakfast, and more!

Join us at WHAAS 2024 as we gather around the fire to celebrate our successes, learn together, and plan for the future of healthcare!
