Who are the Affiliates of the AHC?

We’ve been asked, “What type of individuals are Affiliates of the American Health Council?”

The answer to that question is what makes us so unique. At the AHC, there is no typical Affiliate.

From the coasts to the heartland, the American Health Council has drawn Affiliates from major metropolitan hubs and small communities. Our Affiliates span generations and have reached different stages of their careers — from recent graduates to retirees.

The AHC is where unexpected connections happen and through this synthesis, positive change occurs.

Here is where an Orthognathic Surgeon crosses paths with the Assembly Foreman at the plant which created the robotic arm used in her procedures — and upon expressing her frustration about a quirk in the functionality, they together identify the cause.

This is the American Health Council, where all components of the healthcare industry come together.
