Mark Your Calendar! 2024 KMA Annual Meeting to Examine “The Future of Healthcare in Kentucky”

KMA members are asked to mark their calendars for the 2024 Annual Meeting, to be held Aug. 23-25. The event will be held in a new location this year, at the Hyatt Regency Downtown in Louisville, offering attendees the opportunity to visit local attractions and restaurants while they are in town.

The theme of this year’s meeting will be “Voices and Visions: Influencing the Future of Kentucky Healthcare.” The event will examine trends, workforce issues, emerging technologies and clinical considerations, and how AI is impacting the delivery of healthcare across the state.

KMA is excited to host Health Force Kentucky, a collaboration involving nine colleges and universities along with school districts in sixteen Kentucky counties, who are working to create greater accessibility and the highest levels of instruction and training for careers in health care. Their initiative features hands-on training through simulation labs and classroom curriculum, with a mobile lab that provides that training for more rural communities. Health Force Kentucky will share information about this important work and explore the impact they hope to have in the near future.

Members will also hear from Alex Ding, M.D., Associate Vice President for Physician Strategy and Medical Affairs at Humana, who previously worked at Google on Healthcare AI. Dr. Ding will explore the ways systems are using AI now and what can be expected in the future.

Attendees will also have the chance to hear from patients and families who have been impacted by gene therapy as well as physicians who are on the forefront of providing such innovation in patient care. 

More details on the KMA Annual Meeting, including registration, will be available soon.
