A Virtual Event
Consortia Members & Affiliates $400
Non-Members & General Public $450
The American community health center movement needs our attention now more than ever in its over 50-year history. Now is the time to reflect on our shared past, to reconnect with each other as providers, colleagues, and friends, and reimagine how we will continue to serve through uncertainty. Join the Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County and the Coalition of Orange County Community Health Centers on Friday, April 9, 2021 for the 20th Annual Southern California Health Care Symposium, a one-day virtual event featuring breakout sessions that highlight best practices in health care delivery. We will explore the theme Reinvesting In Our Roots: Driving Innovation for Equity and Justice as we rebuild—and innovate a path forward—together.
