One of the best ways to keep up with the latest advancements in the healthcare industry is by attending annual conferences. Conferences are a great opportunity to get familiar with the latest trends and to share ideas with your fellow practitioners. This is the same for those in community-based health centers. In order to continuously provide accessible and efficient healthcare to all, community health centers must be aware of the latest and important developments in the industry.
If you want to find networking opportunities and learn from industry experts, there are large conferences that are worth attending this year. Here’s a list of the four largest community health conferences happening this 2020:
1. 2020 Policy & Issues Forum: Policy & Issue Forum is the most anticipated gathering of thousands of community health center leaders from around the country.
