The Alliance and AAHCI work closely with members through Executive Leadership Groups (ELGs), comprising key members of academic health center leadership teams.
Through specialized communications and meetings coordinated by the Alliance and AAHCI, members of the ELGs network, collaborate, and share their expertise and experiences to address issues of concern with their peers.
