Register for the 2015 Building Healthy Communities Summit by August 17 to save $100! Hosted by the California Medical Association Foundation’s Network of Ethnic Physician Organizations (NEPO), this year’s event will take place on September 18-20, 2015, at the Riverside Conference Center. The Summit is an opportunity for physicians, public health professionals and community leaders who work with underserved communities to learn about emerging health care policy issues and share best practices on how to reduce health disparities and increase access to health care services for the populations they serve.
With this year’s theme of “Helping Health Providers Address Social Determinants of Health,” Summit attendees will inspire physicians and health care providers to participate in community health efforts and to be challenged to improve health care and the quality of life in their communities. You will have the opportunity to network with colleagues and hear from nationally acclaimed thought leaders, including California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and George Halvorson, Chair of the First 5 California Commission and former Kaiser Permanente chair and CEO, all while receiving continuing medical education units.
New to the Summit this year will be a medical student poster presentation session. NEPO invites any medical student to participate in a poster presentation displaying 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.
