Charlie Cook speaking to MHF luncheon guests, Intercontinental Willard Hotel Washington, D.C., June 2021


At The Willard Hotel, Washington D.C. 

As part of our ongoing engagement with clients and our extensive network of leading public health professionals and organizations, the McUlsky Health Force hosted a lunch and learn at the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC in June 2021, featuring remarks by national political and polling expert Charlie Cook.

Nearly 100 guests including patient, provider, multicultural, veteran, consumer and aging advocates as well as policy experts commiserated, networked, and were informed by Charlie’s most current thinking on the nation’s political affairs and trends. 

Our first Health Force Issues Luncheon after vaccines were made widely available, the event felt like both a reunion of friends, and an affirmation of the important work being done across the public health care landscape.


McUlsky Health Force Issues Luncheons are one way we connect, learn, and socialize with the extraordinary array of public health and industry leaders in the Washington, DC area, and thank many colleagues with whom we support on their most important public affairs objectives.
