Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum

What Is the Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum?

The Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum (AHLF) is a new community within the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). Building on the strong foundation of ACHE member benefits, the Forum offers value-added benefits developed specifically for AHLF members—individuals interested in the distinct opportunities and issues of Asian-American healthcare executives. The formation of this new Forum represents ACHE's ongoing commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in healthcare leadership within ACHE and the profession.

“I cannot emphasize enough how valuable and powerful the Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum is for me. I have not only benefited from being mentored by nationally known executives, but I have also mentored others who will be among the next generation of healthcare's leaders. As a recent hospital president now serving as an executive search consultant, I look forward to being part of AHLF to help healthcare's C-suite become more diverse.”
