2022 Annual Conference

Join the Carolinas Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society for The Resilience Reset, our in-person Annual Conference for 2022 in Charleston, SC, November 30 - December 2.

The last few years have been significantly disruptive to industries – and in many ways, have changed consumer behavior. Change happens quickly in those critical moments, and healthcare has relied on agility and flexibility to stay resilient and grow even stronger. Yet, we don’t know what the future could hold.

What tools and information do healthcare marketers and communicators need to be prepared for what’s ahead? Hear from industry-leading keynote speakers and thought leaders in strategy and planning, internal communications, physician relations, and more about what’s on the horizon – and network with your peers during our daily breakout roundtable discussions.

Let’s reconnect for The Resilience Reset!
