“With an emphasis on the current issues facing health care administrators in the greater West Virginia area, this event will bring together content experts, West Virginia practitioners and health care administration students to define and analyze problems and propose solutions.” – Erik Carlton, associate dean for professional programs and director of graduate studies, School of Public Health

“Health care clinicians and employees have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic even if they are not infected by the virus. The stresses of caring for successive waves of seriously ill patients, in addition to the patients we care for every day, have taken a toll on our frontline workers. It is important for health care institutions to work together sharing ideas and developing methods to assist their teams in addressing the emotional, spiritual and physical demands the pandemic has thrust upon them as they cared for their neighbors.” – Jim Kaufman, president and CEO, West Virginia Hospital Association
