Barbara Ehrenreich is the author of 14 books, including “Nickel and Dimed” and “Bait and Switch.” Her latest book, “Natural Causes,” examines the ways in which we obsess over death, our bodies and our health. Both funny and caustic, Ehrenreich then tackles the seemingly unsolvable problem of how we might better prepare ourselves for the end — while still reveling in the lives that remain to us.
Barbara will share her perspective and engage in conversation at WSHA’s Annual Meeting Oct. 9 at The Hyatt Regency Lake Washington in Renton. Along with Barbara, we will also welcome NPR social correspondent and “Hidden Brain” podcast host Shankar Vedantam and author Chris McChesney. Register now and read more about this year’s meeting.
The Annual Meeting will once again be followed by our Governance Education Day Oct. 10, and this year we will also host our first-ever Advocacy Bootcamp at The Hyatt Oct. 8. Attendees at the bootcamp will learn what hospital advocacy means, why it’s important and what it looks like — whether you’re meeting with lawmakers in Olympia or inviting lawmakers to your facility while the legislature is adjourned.
Online registration closes Friday, Sept. 27. We look forward to seeing you there!
