OHA HealthAchieve 2008 Reflections

HealthAchieve2008 inspired ideas and innovation with more than 50 informative and engaging educational sessions along with its award-winning exhibit floor, where more than 330 exhibitors showcased the latest healthcare products, services and technologies.

More than 8,600 healthcare and business leaders from around the world who came together to learn, build relationships, and share best practices. These delegates included chief executive officers, trustees and representatives from a broad range of administrative and clinical areas.

Offering delegates strategic and unparalleled opportunities for networking, often cited as the number one reason for attending the show, HealthAchieve is one of the largest and most prestigious health care gatherings in North America.

Prominent speakers such as Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien; General Rick Hillier (Ret.); former Governor General of Canada, Adrienne Clarkson; activist Margaret Trudeau; and TV personality and surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz inspired listeners to redefine their goals and set ambitious targets for the future.

On the exhibit floor delegates could enjoy a complimentary massage, have their blood pressure and glucose levels checked and get their annual flu shot.

The Wellness Studio offered a prescription for wellness with chef Bonnie Stern and nutritionist Fran Berkoff demonstrating easy ways to create healthful dishes.
