Details About the Conference
Health Action 2012 begins with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday, January 18, from 7-10pm. The conference officially opens on Thursday, January 19, at 9am and ends on Saturday, January 21, at 2:30pm. There is a special Early Bird Registration of $395 available until Friday, December 16. After that, registration is $445. This fee includes three continental breakfasts, three lunches, afternoon snacks, music and political satire by The Capitol Steps, a thumb drive chock full of resources—and a great meeting of like-minded people, working for justice and health care for all of us.
Location: The conference is being held at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The Hyatt Regency, located at 400 New Jersey Avenue NW, is within walking distance of the U.S. Capitol and is in close proximity to the White House, Smithsonian Museums, the National Gallery, the Spy Museum, national monuments, neighborhood restaurants, and shopping.
There is a special conference rate of $185 per room (single or double) per night plus taxes until December 16. (After that date, you may have to pay a higher rate if a room is available.) If more than two people share a room, add $10 per person per night, with a maximum of 5 occupants. You must guarantee your reservation with a credit card. (Reservations
may be canceled without penalty 2 days prior to 3:00pm EST on the day of
arrival.) The easiest way to reserve your room is online at https://resweb.passkey.com/go/families2012.
