What Is Connexion?

Social Health Connexion, often referred to as Connexion, is Health Union’s annual conference for Health Leaders. Social Health Connexion will provide education, resources, and connection to help support and impact Health Leaders so they can learn and grow! We also announce and honor the winners of the Social Health Awards, where Health Union recognizes and celebrates the important work of health leaders.

Connexion is open to health leaders who are members of the Social Health Network. Not a member? Create an account here.

What is social health?

Social health is the dynamic, real-time actions people take to find meaningful connections and share information that impacts health journeys. It’s connecting with others, learning ways to communicate your story, and making an impact in healthcare.

Connexion history

Before 2020, Connexion was held in person in Philadelphia for our contracted Health Leaders. Since that time, the Connexion conference has been virtual. Whatever the format has been Connexion continues to prioritize fostering connections, education, and growth each year. We’ve had the pleasure of having speakers Nora McInerny, Tyler Campbell, Rebekah Taussig, and more join us to discuss important topics such as:

  • Medical gaslighting
  • Managing patient burnout
  • Using social media as a Health Leader
  • Tapping into your self-worth

Connexion 2023

This year marks our 7th annual conference, which will take place virtually on July 25 and 26. We will kick off with a warm welcome from Health Union’s Leadership Team.

Over 2 days, registrants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about health leadership, new techniques, and tools for online advocacy
  • Plan advocacy goals
  • Share experiences and engage with Health Leaders across nearly 50 condition communities and the Social Health Network

But that’s not all. For the first time, we will be announcing a new, all-in-one certification program. The Patient Leader Certification program will help take your Health Leader skills to the next level. We’ll wrap up with the Social Health Awards Ceremony, where we honor, recognize, and celebrate the work of Health Leaders across all condition areas and platforms. You’ll definitely want to tune in!

We hope you’ll mark your calendars and join us – keep an eye out for an email to register.
