The Virginia Chamber Foundation is pleased to present the 2021 Virginia Health Care Conference.

Business and healthcare leaders will discuss how we can look beyond the COVID-19 pandemic and make Virginia more economically competitive by addressing the needs of our workforce and providing greater equity in health care.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in polling for Blueprint Virginia 2030 – A Business Plan for the Commonwealth and help set the policy goals for Virginia’s health care future.  This plan will be presented to our next Governor following the November election.
