Many Faces of Community Health is a two-day conference on improving care and health equity in underserved populations and among those living in poverty.

2021 Theme: Leading Change in a New Normal

to better meet the needs of underserved communities by providing high quality, culturally-competent, affordable healthcare and enabling services in order to improve access to care and reduce health disparities that persist in the state.

  • Engaging content that inspires action
  • Diversity in speakers, attendees, and communities served
  • Efficient use of resources to keep the cost down for community members

Join us as we examine new community care innovations and health care delivery models that promote health equity, prevent and manage chronic diseases, and ensure access for all.

Nearly 200 people attended our first virtual Many Faces in 2020: health care professionals, students, staff from FQHCs and other safety net programs, policymakers, 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 2021 for this popular and inspiring conference!

We work to ensure that all people in Minnesota have the knowledge and skills they need to live the healthiest lives possible; that they live, learn, work and play in safe and healthy environments; and that they receive the right care in the right place at the right time. To accomplish this, we collect, analyze and publish data that enable our stakeholders to improve health in their community; support clinical systems in the delivery of high-quality care for all; and support community partners with strategies that promote healthy and safe communities, and community-wide prevention and management initiatives.
