Park DuValle Community Health Center, under the leadership of Dr. Swannie Jett, have taken their talents to San Diego, CA this week to participate in the NACHC Community Health Institute & Expo.
The National Association for Community Health Centers (NACHC) sponsors and co-sponsors several conferences each year that provide a unique platform for healthcare professionals and advocates to come together, share insights and best practices, and learn about the latest developments in the industry.
The NACHC Community Health Institute (CHI) and EXPO is the largest annual gathering of health center clinicians, executives, consumer board members, along with State/Regional Primary Care Associations and Health Center Controlled Networks. The conference (August 27-29) takes place in San Diego, CA, at a time when health centers are charting a new course in a rapidly changing health environment and being called upon to assume a larger role in the nation’s health care system.
Health centers now confront a time when change must be viewed within the context of opportunity. They must find new ways to deliver care more effectively and efficiently. The pathway to sustainability and competition calls for training in new disciplines, collaboration, workforce development, technology and pursuing innovative models of care that target both the social determinants of health and address the emerging public health issues and challenges of our day.
At CHI, attendees have multiple opportunities to:
- hear from thought and industry leaders about cutting edge ideas and partnerships to improve financial sustainability and improve care
- network with peers from across the country and U.S. territories
- share ideas and best practices to stay vibrant and viable in the health care marketplace
These conferences offer a range of educational and networking opportunities, with topics ranging from health policy and advocacy to clinical best practices and patient engagement. If you’re passionate about this mission and want to make a meaningful impact, then you won’t want to miss out on attending a NACHC conference!
