Primary Care Innovations Conference

In 2017 the Free Center hosted the first, annual professional conference designed with a twist. Sessions are interactive and centered around the sharing of ideas. This conference is for anyone and everyone working to improve primary care – medical assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, administrators, students, residents, fellows, IT specialists, receptionists, physical and occupational therapists, physician assistants and physicians. Together, we can make primary care better. Our aim is to create a collaborative space in which the primary care community can share and learn from each other’s innovative practices and ideas. With your participation we strive to: Share primary care practice innovations which improve access, quality, and coordination of care Think beyond our current traditional medical culture/framework to push the status quo in primary care forward Bring all members of the interdisciplinary primary care team together to innovate Build a community of innovators in primary care who will have the opportunity to continue to collaborate into the future
