Many Faces of Community Health is a 2-day conference that explores improving care and reducing health disparities in underserved populations and among those living in poverty. Many Faces brings information and resources on clinical care, public policy, and health innovations to Minnesota’s health care community, with a focus on safety net providers.
Our theme is Community Centered Care and the People We Serve. Many Faces looks at the role of the safety net with a focus on meeting the needs of underserved people. We examine community care innovations, health care delivery models, and other healthcare reform initiatives that promote health equity, prevent and manage chronic diseases, and ensure access for all.
Over 400 people attended Many Faces in 2017: health care professionals, students, staff from FQHCs and other safety net programs, policy makers, and Minnesotans active in community and public health. Attendees come together to learn about the impact of health care reforms, ways to advance health equity, and how to apply best practices to the delivery of primary care to the disadvantaged. Many health care organizations and companies support Many Faces as sponsors and/or exhibitors, joining with public health and community-based agencies to promote our conference and deepen our impact on Minnesota’s health care safety net providers and patients.
We hope you will join us in 2018 for this popular and inspiring conference!
