SHSMD and Feedback

A round of applause for: The Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD)!

2019 marks the tenth anniversary of Feedback and to celebrate we will be sharing memories from the last ten years. From multiple-cross-country trips to multi-country ones, from Keyboard Cat to Bonnaroo, and from three determined founders to a family of friends and colleagues all over… we’ve been incredibly lucky to have had such an amazing first ten years!

The Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD), a professional membership group of the American Hospital Association, is the largest and most prominent voice for health care strategists in planning, marketing, communications, public relations, business development and physician strategy. SHSMD is committed to leading, connecting and serving its members to prepare them for the future with greater knowledge and opportunity as their organizations strive to improve the health of their communities.


“My work with SHSMD began just over ten years ago and in that time I have been so incredibly fortunate to cultivate some of the deepest professional relationships and work of my career and sealed equally deep personal friendships. And let’s not forget the memorable Annual Conferences – Feedback has never missed one (although I personally missed one – I got married, it was worth it). While I certainly changed and improved as a healthcare thinker and professional, so did SHSMD as an organization. In the last few years I’ve been further lucky to serve on SHSMD’s Board of Directors and seen it all from a completely new vantage point. More recently I’ve been able to bring some of my PhD work to look at the association from a different angle and it’s only gotten even more satisfying.”

“SHSMD, Chicago, 2013. The conference was exceptional. Dean did an amazing presentation on digital web strategy. We got to explore the awesome town of Chicago (Deep dish pizza. Need I say more?) and I got to connect with some of the most talented healthcare marketers who are now friends. (Ryan, Tandi)”
