Join us at Putting Care at the Center 2018
By Hannah Mogul-Adlin
This December will be the third annual conference of our National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs. Putting Care at the Center 2018 will be in Chicago, IL, December 5-7, and we hope you will join 600-800 of your colleagues from across the country as we work to build the emerging field of complex care.
Putting Care at the Center is an opportunity for innovators and advocates for healthcare delivery reform from across the country, both pioneers and newcomers, to meet, network, and create a shared agenda for complex care. Past conferences have featured keynotes like Harlem Children’s Zone founder Geoffrey Canada, Former Acting Administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Andy Slavitt, and Latino Health Access Executive Director America Bracho, as well as thought-provoking plenaries, interactive workshops, and more. Read the recaps from 2016 and 2017.
This year’s conference theme is Complex Care, Today and Tomorrow. We will delve into complex care models that have been developed across the country and explore directions for future innovation. Do you have exciting work in complex care to share? Helpful tools? A timely topic to discuss? We are looking for presenters for Putting Care at the Center 2018 and hope we can add your voice to the conversation. We have three different types of presentation opportunities: workshops, the interactive Beehive, and Satellite Sessions. Check out our Presentation Opportunities page to figure out which one is right for you.
Putting Care at the Center 2018 will also feature our third cohort of Consumer Scholars. We offer funding each year to ensure consumer and caregiver participation at the conference, in the form of grants to nonprofit organizations covering one consumer or caregiver and one accompanying staff member’s registration. Consumers are also covered for the cost of travel, hotel, and incidentals. Interested in applying as a Consumer Scholar or on behalf of a consumer at your organization?
