PHL Health Advisors for Expert Advice and Guidance

To address the new needs of our customers, we have partnered with Dr. David Nash, Dean Emeritus of the Jefferson College of Population Health, to serve as the PHLCVB’s Chief Health Advisor by providing direct advice and guidance to meeting and event planners. Dr. Nash supports the PHLCVB by analyzing public health and safety reports, reviewing current public health guidelines and protocols, and making recommendations to meeting planner customers.

Dr. Nash also works closely with the PHL Health Advisors, a subcommittee of the PHLCVB’s Life Sciences division and its Nursing Leadership Committee—both comprised of experts from the world-renowned Philadelphia medical community.

In 2021, Dr. Nash was recognized as one of Meetings Today’s Meetings Trendsetters for his work advising those in the meetings and events industry about COVID-19, vaccine safety and the impact of the pandemic on tourism, meetings and events.
