HealthWell Foundation Announces Presenting Sponsorship for the 2023 Healthcare Advocate Summit
HealthWell to Also Provide Best Practices Programming to Foundation Donors and Patient Stakeholders
GERMANTOWN, Md. — April 17, 2023 — The HealthWell Foundation®, an independent non-profit that provides a financial lifeline for inadequately insured Americans, is honored to announce that it has partnered with the Healthcare Advocate Summit team as a presenting sponsor of the third annual Summit to be held in New Orleans, LA, September 6 – 8, 2023.
This three-day event includes a full day seminar hosted by HealthWell, and other similarly mission-focused organizations, devoted specifically to interested and existing corporate manufacturer donors in the charitable patient assistance program (CPAP) space. The seminar will provide a complete overview as well as in-depth detail toward assisting patients with their medication copays, insurance premiums, and other ancillary costs through independent foundational support. All sessions will be both in-person and live-streamed, with the ability to submit questions anonymously prior to the seminar and ask questions in person and via the live-stream throughout the day.
In addition, HealthWell will also sponsor the two-day networking lounge and exhibit during the Summit.
“We are thrilled to once again be working with the HealthWell Foundation for this year’s Healthcare Advocate Summit,” said Elizabeth Johnson and Melissa Paige, Co-CEO’s, Healthcare Advocate Summit. “As the Summit continues to grow annually, we are honored to have the support, collaboration, and vision of the HealthWell team to bring together like-minded communities who put patient needs above all else. HealthWell’s longstanding commitment to mitigate the challenges patients face in accessing proper medical care has a tremendous impact on not only the patient, but the patient advocate community as well. We applaud HealthWell for their tireless efforts to ensure that no patient goes without critical medical care and look forward to working with the team as we continue to identify new ways to make the patient journey less cumbersome.”
“We are excited to increase our partnership with the Healthcare Advocate Summit team for our third consecutive year for this must-attend event,” said Krista Zodet, President and CEO, HealthWell Foundation. “Collaborative efforts to create programming to share best practices with corporate donors and all other patient advocate stakeholders will be truly worthwhile. Ensuring that Foundations such as HealthWell and the rest of the community compliantly interact with the best interests of patients in mind will be the gold standard to which this Summit continues to aspire.”
