This year’s summit will assemble representatives from state‐​focused, free‐​market think tanks to share ideas about how to make health care better and more widely available, particularly to the most vulnerable members of society. Panel presentations, debates, and plenary sessions featuring notable speakers will promote a lively dialogue between attendees, and are sure to drive conversations in the year to come.

The summit will take place at the Texas Public Policy Foundation headquarters in Austin, Texas. The hotel is located just off of 6th Street, the heart of Austin’s renowned music scene. Attendees will be within walking distance of Austin’s riverfront in one direction and the Texas Capitol Building in the other. We’re especially pleased to note the average high temperature in Austin in January is 62 degrees. Evening temperatures may fall to about 42 degrees.

As one of our speakers, we are pleased to cover the cost of travel, hotel accommodations and meals during the summit.
