Health & Safety Protocols Update

Please be advised that due to the region’s COVID metrics, members’ feedback, and efforts by similar healthcare organizations, updates have been made to the Annual Meeting’s Health & Safety Protocols. They include the following:

  1. VACCINATIONS: Vaccinations and boosters will now be required. A negative test within 72 hours of the start of the meeting will also be accepted. While AUPHA staff will be checking your vaccination status at the registration desk, you may also pre-check by sending a copy/image of proof of your vaccination to Lena Dixon, ldixon@aupha.org, any time before the meeting.
  2. MASKS: Usage of masks while in confined, indoor spaces will continue to be highly encouraged.
  3. LANYARDS: AUPHA will be providing colored lanyards to indicate your comfort level when interacting with others.
    • RED: No contact. Just smiles and waves.
    • YELLOW: Limited contact. Fist bumps or elbows.
    • GREEN: Comfortable with contact. Handshakes and hugs.
    AUPHA understands that this is a late change to the health and safety protocols, so please reach out to Jason Walker, jwalker@aupha.org, if you have any questions.


    AUPHA is excited to hold the 2022 AUPHA Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City between June 7th and 9th. The theme of this year's Meeting is The Evolution of Normality: Embracing Shifting Boundaries. This theme lends itself perfectly to the current environment, allowing for speakers and discussion topics that revolve around the causes, effects, and direction within the everchanging field of healthcare administration.

    The Annual Meeting Planning Committee has developed a wonderful group of keynote speakers for this Meeting, including Georges C. Benjamin, MD, Bryan Brayboy, PhD, Michael Good, MD, and Lisa Simpson, MB, B.Ch, MPH, FAAP. Additionally, the schedule will still include all of the usual Undergraduate Track, Graduate Track, Global Symposium, and educational sessions.
