PHL Hospitality Health Pledge
In early July, the PHLCVB launched the PHL Health Pledge, an initiative designed to increase awareness of the destination’s readiness in safely welcoming back visitors as Philadelphia gradually reopens for business. C&A has proudly signed the Hospitality Health Pledge as a symbol of a unified commitment to reopening Philadelphia safely and a commitment to clients and staff.
By signing the pledge, we agree to uphold social distancing protocols and increased standards for cleanliness and safety. To date, there are nearly 50 members of the PHLCVB who have signed the pledge representing hotels, restaurants and attractions. You can see a full list here.
Members who sign the pledge are featured on a dedicated landing page of the PHLCVB’s website.
To support the effort, the PHLCVB has 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 will also serve as a PHLCVB-designated spokesperson on panels, and review current public health guidelines, reports and protocols in order to make recommendations to meeting planner customers.
Dr. Nash is an acclaimed national leader in population health who holds both an MD and MBA. He is currently an endowed chair professor of Health Policy at the Jefferson College of Population Health (JCPH), the first of its kind in the country, where he served for more than a decade as the founding Dean, culminating a 30-year tenure. A board-certified internist, Dr. Nash is internationally recognized for his work in public accountability for outcomes, physician leadership development, and quality-of-care improvement. More recently, he has been lauded for his thought leadership surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
