In a time when health care rights are under attack and health disparities persist, community health centers have been at the center of advancing access to equitable care. Health centers will be at the forefront of California’s continued health care transformation, coverage expansions, telehealth advancements and workforce solutions. Now is the time to push for bold solutions to create a sustainable – and just – health care system.  

The 22nd Annual Southern California Health Care Symposium’s theme was Revolutionary Medicine: Thriving Communities Realized Through Health Care Transformation. Health center leaders, staff, partners and advocates joined the Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County and the Coalition of Orange County Community Health Centers on Friday, March 24, 2023 to reimagine how we build systems of care that champion the wellbeing of all people.

All of these changes have caused dominant, traditional leadership approaches to become obsolete. In this session, health care leaders will gain an understanding of the future of work while challenging traditional leadership approaches and learning how to build and maintain psychological safety – a critical element in creating a culture of belonging and employee satisfaction.
