This session will offer an environmental scan that will provide a context for discussions about NACHC’s future strategic direction and priorities. The scan will include how a pandemic, a recession, an election and a renewed social justice movement may impact safety-net providers and will change community health. Come hear from the leading experts in these fields.
Demonstrate how PCAs and HCCNs are handling both challenges and opportunities in state telehealth and Medicaid policy to protect and expand primary care delivery and improve health outcomes.
Explore the unique value in community systems of care during a discussion about evolving and emerging roles of PCAs and HCCNs in non-traditional partnerships, health advocacy, and capacity building. During this session, PCAs and HCCNs will discuss how relationships at the local, state and national levels have been strengthened and new ones created, identify new ways to access critical resources as care changes, and how data and information is leveraged to understand and support key initiatives and implications on policy and operations both short and long-term. Join the discussion with each PCA or HCCN to hear more about their experiences, key information used in each approach, and discuss ways needed to keep the momentum moving forward.

With its foundation in social justice, the Health Center Movement should be positioned to lead the nation as a model for diversity, equity and inclusivity. During this session, attendees will hear from a national organization that adopted the Learning Collaborative Model to guide entities in developing their abilities to identify areas of concern and develop strategies towards a new dynamic for systemic changes. The session will be an interactive “conversation” between the speaker, reactor panelists and the audience.
The health inequities and vulnerabilities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and coupled with historic unemployment rates and looming homelessness underscores the need for a health center workforce that is more prepared than ever to deliver high-quality, patient-centered, comprehensive care to an increasing number of medically underserved individuals with complex health conditions. Where will health centers find and recruit the workforce to serve this expanding need? How will they ensure that the proper training and education to address social determinants of health is implemented? The recently funded Health Professions Education & Training (HP-ET) Initiative presents an opportunity to address the workforce needs of health centers well into the future. What roles should PCAs, HCCNs, and NTTAPs play to advance this initiative? Which workforce strategies support the workforce to meet the needs of the populations served by health centers? What resources are available and how can they be applied? How does your strategy fit into your organization’s recommitment to social and racial justice? Join this discussion to examine and reflect upon how health centers can use a variety of resources to enhance their workforce strategies to grow toward a diverse workforce that is representative of the populations that they serve.
Through the Health Center Program, the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) funds and supports health centers in underserved communities, providing access to high quality, family oriented, comprehensive primary and preventive health care for people who are low-income, uninsured or face other obstacles to receiving health care. Over its more than 55 year history, the Health Center Program has grown from two health centers to nearly 1,400 health centers, serving 1 in 11 people in the United States at approximately 13,000 sites in every U.S. state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. Throughout the pandemic, health centers have played an important role in providing testing and care for those affected by COVID-19, while continuing to provide quality primary health care services for the nation’s underserved. This session will provide updates on BPHC's programmatic operations, overall strategic direction, and COVID-19 impacts and efforts. Join this discussion to learn more about BPHC strategic directions, funding opportunities, and operational updates for FY 2021.
