"The opportunity to attend the 2022 AHP International Conference in October was inspiring and uplifting. I am so grateful to the AHP Foundation Board and selection committee for choosing me as the 2022 Hospital Development and Education Fund (HDEF) of Canada bursary recipient.
I loved how EDI principles were woven throughout the entire conference, from start to finish. It created a vibe of inclusivity and belonging. Deep and meaningful conversations were taking place. It was eyeopening to hear people's stories, experiences and truths. Thank you to AHP for including these themes in a thoughtful and intentional manner that supports all of our journeys to be more inclusive and aware.
Since the beginning of my career, I recognized the incredible value AHP brings to our profession, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to volunteer and attend conferences that your incredible team and volunteers put together each year. I feel even more honoured to be recognized as one of AHP's 40 under 40 this year.
Thank you for providing me with another incredible education experience."

“I cannot say enough about my experience at the Madison Institute. I participated in the Annual Giving Track, and every topic was pertinent to my job. It was indeed a valuable professional development opportunity for me. Since I am responsible for the Grateful Patient program, the Employee Giving, work with our events, and our newsletters and social media, I gained so much information that will be helpful in my daily job.
The conference was first class, and I could not have asked for more. Every aspect of the conference was fantastic, including the presentations, the notebooks, the instructors, the attendees, and the facilities. The food and beverage were more than I expected from the conference, and the design had just the correct number of breaks, networking, and instruction.
I expected to take classes, but I did not expect the quality of the overall experience. My expectations were more than surpassed!”
