The View from Washington

Richard J. Pollack, President and CEO, American Hospital Association
A respected Washington veteran, Rick Pollack knows that helping hospitals take care of people and communities takes a steady hand and a recognition that the goal is of greater importance than the political path to get there. Pollack will bring his front-line Capitol Hill expertise as he discusses how AHA is working with federal lawmakers and the Trump administration to protect hospitals’ and patients’ interests during this historic transformation.

In a Healthy Culture, Excellence is Driven by Successes and Failures

Dr. David Wolf, NASA Astronaut, Doctor, Engineer, Inventor & Speaker

Hospital leaders often talk about the need to go beyond their comfort zones, to experiment, to test boundaries – all in the name of advancing ideas and techniques to better serve their patients and communities. Dr. David Wolf, a former astronaut who spent 41 hours performing zero-gravity spacewalks miles above the Earth, knows something about the value of crossing into unfamiliar territory. Dr. Wolf earned his medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine and trained as a flight surgeon with the U.S. Air Force, but medicine was not his final frontier. Dr. Wolf is considered the “father” of the Space Bioreactor, a tissue engineering methodology used for cancer research and regenerative medicine on Earth as well as demonstrating the further advantages when conducted in microgravity. He will share his thoughts on leadership, motivation, and innovation, and how to apply these values in every setting, whether it’s hundreds of miles above the Earth or in a hospital emergency department.
