Registration is now live for the 18th annual Network of Ethnic Physician Organizations (NEPO) Summit, to be held virtually on October 8, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The theme of this year’s summit is: “Enduring a Pandemic: How Diverse Clinical Settings Adapted and Succeeded.”
We are pleased to announce that continuing medical education (CME) credits* are available for the morning session, which will be a deep dive on the topic of California’s new Cultural and Linguistic Competency (CLC) and Implicit Bias (IB) standards in CME. This session will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Afternoon session (1-4:30 p.m.) topics include COVID-19, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), health outcome disparities in the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, and more. Please note that no CME is available for the afternoon session.
This year, we are honored to feature Sandra Hernández, M.D., CEO of the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF), as our keynote speaker. Prior to joining CHCF, Dr. Hernández was CEO of The San Francisco Foundation, which she led for 16 years. She previously served as director of public health for the City and County of San Francisco. She also co-chaired San Francisco’s Universal Healthcare Council, which designed Healthy San Francisco. It was the first time a local government in the U.S. attempted to provide health care for all its constituents. Dr. Hernández has also been appointed to the board of directors of Covered California, as well as to the Healthy California for All Commission.
The NEPO Summit will also include the presentation of PHC’s 2021 Leadership Awards. These awards celebrate individuals and organizations that champion health equity.
