PHLCVB Launches New PHL Health Pledge And Appoints Dr David Nash Chief Health Advisor

The Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau has launched the ‘PHL Health Pledge’, a new initiative to increase awareness of the destination’s efforts to safely welcome back visitors as Philadelphia gradually reopens for business. To support this effort, the PHLCVB has partnered with Dr. David Nash, to serve as the PHLCVB’s Chief Health Advisor by providing direct advice and guidance to meeting and event planners.
Dr. Nash will also work closely with the 18-member PHL Health Advisors, a subcommittee of the PHLCVB’s Life Sciences division and its Nursing Leadership Committee – both comprised of experts from the Philadelphia medical community. The subcommittee will serve as a trusted resource and will relay updates to the PHLCVB regarding medical information and advancements in the fight against COVID-19. The team will also act as an internal review board for the PHLCVB on public health and safety best practices.
The PHLCVB’s Chief Health Advisor and the PHL Health Advisors subcommittee are both important components of the PHL Health Pledge initiative, which will serve as the framework for the future travel experience, and includes guidance for vigilant sanitation, cleanliness, and increased public health awareness.
The PHL Health Pledge initiative is comprised of three key components: 
1. PHL Health Advisors, including:
o Dr. Nash serving as Chief Health Advisor who will provide guidance directly to meeting planner customers and serve as a public spokesperson on behalf of the PHLCVB with regards to matters of public health and tourism
o The 18-member PHL Health Advisors sub-committee of PHL Life Sciences, which will be an internal support team, providing guidance to the PHLCVB on health and safety standards as well as information on local medical advancements in the fight against COVID-19
2. Resources for Safely Reopening:
o Aggregated list of plans from national partners like U.S. Travel Association as well as local tourism partners, for review by potential visitors
o PHL Hospitality Health Pledge which can be signed by PHLCVB members and other local tourism-related businesses to show their commitment to new health and safety standards as they reopen   
3. Continuing Education and Innovation:
o On-going training and support for PHLCVB members to keep abreast of public health best practices to keep their hotels, attractions, and venues safe for visitors
