Primary care transformation is hard, and some changes are more successful and enduring than others. Learn from peers from across the country who have transformed their residency programs and clinical practices.

The 2020 conference will bring together providers, researchers, educators, practice team members, and administrators to reimagine health care education, delivery, and technology.  All members of the care and residency teams are invited to submit, including residents, students, behavioral health specialists, nurses, medical assistants, physician assistants, and administrators.
