The Network of Ethnic Organization (NEPO) 2016 Building Healthy Communities Summit will be held September 16-18 at the Marriott Hotel and Spa in Newport Beach. The Summit is designed to inspire physicians and health care providers to participate in community health efforts and challenge them to improve health care and quality of life in their communities.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from nationally acclaimed thought leaders and network with colleagues. Featured speakers include:
- Dave Jones, California Insurance Commissioner
- George Halvorson, Chair of the First 5 Commission
- Karen Smith M.D., MPH, Director of the California Department of Public Health
- Rishi Manchanda, M.D., Founder of HealthBegins and author of The Upstream Doctors
Once again, the summit will also include a medical student poster presentation session. NEPO invites any medical student to participate in a poster presentation displaying their health care research. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to display their work and network with other health care providers. For additional information, including guidelines and application, click here.
