2023 NRC Health Pediatric Collaborative promotes Human Understanding

The most highly regarded pediatric healthcare-marketing and patient-experience professionals will gather for NRC Health’s 2023 Pediatric Collaborative at Phoenix Children’s on March 28–29, and registration is open for you to join.

The NRC Health 2023 Pediatric Collaborative is truly a can’t-miss experience, with exceptional messages that stir innovative ideas to bring back to larger PX and marketing teams. The theme, “Understanding on-deck,” will bring high-performing organizations together to connect directly with their “home team” of pediatrics and collaborate with and learn from peers in an intimate and intentional setting.

NRC Health is excited to host attendees in a private suite on Tuesday, March 28, at Chase Field, where the Arizona Diamondbacks will take on the Cleveland Guardians for a spring-training game. Tickets, food, beverage, and transportation are taken care of, so you can sit back and enjoy America’s favorite pastime. It’ll be a casual day of team bonding—and jerseys and baseball caps are encouraged throughout the day’s events!
