The NEPO Summit is known for bringing together some of the most diverse voices in medicine and providing an opportunity to discuss critical topics in health care through the lens of multiculturalism and health equity. The theme for this year is “Enduring a Pandemic: How Diverse Clinical Settings Adapted and Succeeded.” This year’s event will be divided into two sessions:
Morning Session (CME available*): From 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Matthew Cahill and Sejal Thakkar will guide participants through exercises and case studies regarding the impact of implicit bias in health outcomes. A panel discussion with Dave Newhouse, M.D., MBA, MPH; Kristin Jenson, M.D.; and Susan Schwartz will provide additional insight into what providers can do to provide more culturally responsive care.
Afternoon Session (no CME available): From 1 to 4:30 p.m., speakers will tackle topics such as physician wellness, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), health disparities and more. PHC will also present its annual Leadership Awards to individuals and organizations that have made significant achievements in advancing health equity.
*This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of California Medical Association (CMA) and Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC). The California Medical Association (CMA) is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
