What We are Seeking


We are seeking presenters experienced in working with populations from diverse communities who face significant health, social and economic challenges. We encourage submission of abstracts for practical, tested, culturally appropriate strategies or best practices that can be implemented in clinical or community settings and that:

  • Advance health equity
  • Address the needs of patients with or at risk for chronic diseases
  • Address quality of care, care redesign or operational improvements, team-based care, or care coordination and care integration involving primary care settings (including medical, behavioral, oral health and/or community outreach)
  • Address the unique challenges facing safety net providers
  • Align operations with the Triple Aim and/or Health Care Homes

Our overall conference goals are to:

  • Summarize a variety of interventions to reduce health disparities
  • Describe the impact of health care reform on safety-net providers and underserved populations in Minnesota
  • Identify external resources to help adapt to the challenges of operating within the reform environment
  • Recognize how national and state health care reform will affect access, quality and reimbursement
