With a nationwide constituency comprising medical leaders and innovators, the American Health Council is capable of providing the most deliberate health care interventions. Our affiliate base consists of practitioners in allied health, dentistry, obstetrics, medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, psychology & other health professions. This is further supported by our constituency’s educators, professors, researchers, and scientists.
By facilitating the exchange of information through advanced networking, the American Health Council remains dedicated to improving the overall well-being of the population, as well as alleviating the global burden of disease. Shared knowledge can lay the groundwork for preemptive action. Real-time collaboration gives way to better methodical reactions to address emerging problems. In this era of globalization, and in order to ensure our survival, we require national cooperation to combat sickness & disease that affects our country.
Intimately connected, our experts are aligned in their objective to maintain & improve the physical & mental health of Americans. Working hand in hand, our collective has self-created an unprecedented knowledge base & communication network. Through this network, coupled with the extensive services and outreach platforms that we provide, we continue to achieve this goal.
In response to the intense politicization of American healthcare over the past two decades carried out by powerful trade groups and lobbyists, a small group of physicians and professors began discussing the role they play in the regulations defining the future of patient care. This soon evolved into a larger discussion, growing to include the wider base of healthcare industry professionals including nurses, administrators, and researchers. While their ideas and outlook for the future of the industry differed, they remained like-minded in their primary motivation — to provide better treatment for Americans.
In 2015, with funding secured from angel investors, the American Health Council was formed to provide a formal platform for healthcare professionals to congregate, and exchange ideas in an effort to push them forward. The initial round of funding was used to open the AHC’s primary headquarters in New York which would house a team of Affiliate Liaisons in an effort to expand the size and reach of the Council.
Since 2016, the AHC has grown steadily, welcoming Affiliates in all 50 states from both rural and metropolitan areas. Many Affiliates utilize professional services provided by the organization enabling them to distribute research work, extend social outreach, discover mentoring opportunities, and collaborate for legislative change. Through offering these services to the constituency, the AHC has since been able to sustain its operations and grow completely self-funded. Self-funding is a critical part of the AHC’s vision for its success. By eliminating the influence of outside parties and groups, the Council is able to serve the interests of its Affiliates unadulterated.
Affiliates of the American Health Council are grouped into Advisory Boards based upon specialty. These Advisory Boards serve as the breeding ground where new ideas come to fruition, and the impact of external events are assessed. Umbrellaed under the greater Council, these Advisory Boards then collaborate with one another to advance their initiatives cross-specialty. Affiliate input enables the AHC to serve as a channel in determining what concerns are of the greatest importance to healthcare industry professionals, and in providing those from all areas of healthcare the ability to work with one another in tackling these issues.
In building an organization representative of all professional participants — of all levels of experience and spanning generations — and doing so self-sufficiently, the American Health Council hopes to provide healthcare professionals with an influential voice in the decisions that affect patient treatment in America.

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.
