A Message from the BYHP Leadership Team

Dear BYHP Community,

Here we are, closing out 2020. While it has been a year of rapid change and adaptability, at BYHP we have felt more connected than ever. This year we had a number of online social events - trivia nights, fireside chats, leadership breakfasts, and of course, our annual conference. To celebrate our success this year, we want to take a moment to thank you for your support and participation. Your engagement is what allows the BYHP network to prosper year after year.

As a reminder, there is limited time left to submit an application for the 2020-2021 Mentorship Program Cycle! If you are looking for the right opportunity to meet with an established professional for career advice, or if you'd like to flex your mentorship skills - make sure to apply before December 31st. 

Lastly, mark your calendars for some great events in 2021:

  • BYHP Health IMPACT + Heading Home: Tuesday, January 26, 2021 - join the Health IMPACT team for an interactive webinar led by Heading Home. 
  • BYHP Book Club: Thursday, February 25, 2021 - join Fina for an engaging discussion on our first quarterly book club meeting in 2021. This event is for members only
As always, thank you for being a valued part of BYHP.

Warm Regards,
The BYHP Leadership Team

In line with Governor Baker’s phased approach to re-opening Massachusetts, BYHP continues to offer all of our programming online until it is safe for us to meet in-person.

Thank you for making BYHP's 6th Annual Conference a virtual hit!

We would like to offer a sincere thank you to all speakers, panelists, and attendees of the 6th Annual Boston Young Healthcare Professionals Conference.

Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, we had close to 100 participants engage in a day-long conversation with keynotes, mental and behavioral health specialists, policy makers, and technology advocates. 

If you would like to connect with any of the speakers or panelists for further networking opportunities, make sure to check out the Conference 2020 page on the BYHP website
