Upcoming Summit Highlights Disparities Reduction and Cultural Competency

Upcoming Summit Highlights Disparities Reduction and Cultural Competency

The Network of Ethnic Physician Organizations (NEPO) is happy to announce the 2015 Building Healthy Communities (BHC) Summit: Helping Health Providers Address Social Determinants of Health. This event, from September 18-20 in Riverside, is a unique and exciting educational event for physicians, public health professionals, and community leaders. The 2015 BHC Summit will provide you with opportunities to learn about emerging health policy issues, best practices for reducing health disparities, and cultural competency in clinical care.

The Summit will inspire physicians and healthcare providers to participate in community health efforts and to be challenged to improve health care and the quality of life in their communities. You will have the opportunity to hear from nationally acclaimed thought leaders and network with colleagues. Our keynote speakers include California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and George Halvorson, the chair of the First 5 Commission of California. We are also pleased to offer CME credits. 

The BHC Summit will also be hosting a poster presentation session for current medical students. We would like to extend to any medical student an opportunity to participate in a poster presentation displaying their health care research. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to display their work and network with other health care providers. For additional information, including guidelines and application, click here.

Building healthy communities is a key component of what community physicians are about. NEPO embraces these challenges and encourages physicians and other health care providers to be involved in community efforts to make California healthier for all.

Please join us in building on and expanding the important work of NEPO at the largest multi-ethnic physician convening in the country.
