2014 Spring Meeting
When: March 20th – 21st, 2014
Where: The Westin Buckhead – Atlanta
3391 Peachtree Road
Atlanta, Georgia 30326
Theme: “Connecting the Dots: Higher Education Reform and Employer Needs in Allied Health”
The 2014 ASAHP Spring Meeting will focus on the intersection of employer needs and higher education – what are employers seeking from our graduates and how can we can better prepare them for practice settings?
Presentations will be made by senior corporate leaders from the rehab community actively recruiting and hiring allied health graduates for clinical practice settings. Professor Bridgett Piernik-Yoder will share with us the results of her extensive research regarding “on boarding” new graduates into practice to better inform our institutions on how we can better assist our students making this transition.
In order to assist both employers and our students, we also need to understand the federal agenda for higher education, including the Administration’s ongoing legislative and regulatory agenda and the prospects and anticipated direction of the re authorization of the Higher Education Act. Lee Foley of Capitol Hill Partners, a noted federal expert in higher education issues for over three decades, will brief us on the expectations and latest developments in higher education reform and what they mean for allied health programs moving forward.
We will also be joined by Patricia Simone, M.D. of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to discuss CDC’s overall agenda and its intersection with allied health, along with a popular speaker on leadership issues, Rob Williams of Georgia State University as well as continue our collaborative effort to move our association’s strategic plan forward.
We look forward to seeing you in March!
