Get in the know. Add value to your organization. Enable your team.

Welcome to the 2018 Cleveland Annual Conference!
Our annual premier educational and networking event features nationally known speakers, multiple plenary presentations, and concurrent breakout sessions for employers and other key stakeholders in the health benefits industry.

Throughout the year, we’ve been working hand-in-hand with employer members to create dynamic educational programming that addresses the interests, needs, and concerns of mid-size and large employers.

It will provide multiple opportunities to network with industry leaders and like-minded individuals and peers who share an interest in healthcare and benefits. Speakers and panels will offer thought-provoking points of view, along with substantive, objective content that will show how truly In·Value·Able a membership with Health Action Council really is!

Keynote Presentation:  Destin Sandlin


Destin Sandlin is an Aerospace Engineer known for his educational video series, Smarter Every Day (SED), one of YouTube’s top-rated science channels. In early 2016, Sandlin was one of three YouTube personalities chosen to conduct a one-on-one interview with then-President Barack Obama after his final State of the Union address. He later started a second YouTube channel called The Sound Traveler in which he employs 3D audio and GoPro footage to capture and convey the experience of visiting the world’s most interesting places. In February 2017, he started a podcast with his friend, Matt Whitman, called “No Dumb Questions.”
Sandlin received his Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alabama, and his graduate degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He is a full-time Missile Flight Test Engineer at Redstone Arsenal, also in Huntsville, where he resides with his wife and four children.

He's a "guy with a Southern accent who also happens to help people look at the world differently"  and will do so by discussing topics including the: 
  • Significance of understanding that knowledge does not equal understanding
  • Limitless wonders and endless possibilities of science 
  • Value of "unlearning" and how to incorporate old methods into a
    new dynamic
  • Ways transparent, meaningful, respectful conversations can improve day-to-day interactions
