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.

The focus of our 14th annual conference is Community Centered Care and the People We Serve. 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.

Over 400 people attended Many Faces in 2018: 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 2019 for this popular and inspiring conference!
