Participant Testimonials
"My favorite event is Mini-Congress," said Raishme Singh, past student associate. "I had the opportunity to attend the larger ACHE Congress in Chicago in 2019 and when I saw HLNY host a local version I was so excited; and it exceeded my expectations. I loved that there were different topics of discussion throughout the day, it featured a group of diverse and inclusive panelists, and we still had time to network with each other throughout the event. I can't wait for this year's Mini-Congress!"

"HLNY's Mini-Congress is an annual event I cherish for professional growth and connection. I missed spending that day with HLNY colleagues last year and realize we can't take these opportunities for granted. The 2021 speaker lineup is exceptional! I can't wait to join leaders from across New York's healthcare spectrum to spend October 7 learning from and inspiring one another." Andy Wuertele, CEO, East River Medical Imaging and President-Elect, HLNY.
