Empowerment. Encouragement. Opportunity.


Joining HLNY and networking is the link to professional and personal growth. Networking is especially important to finding success in the healthcare industry, as most healthcare jobs are filled through known or referred contacts in the industry. Professional networking can help in the search of new opportunities and in exploring different careers within healthcare, which is why students and early careerists should take advantage of networking. After joining ACHE and attending HLNY events, new relationships are built. Sometimes it only takes meeting the right person at the right time to unlock a new opportunity. Find An Event >
