Welcome to the 2021 P&I Virtual Forum!

During this virtual forum, we we come together to set priorities for the year and move forward a strategic course of action to ensure continued progress for the nation’s community health centers. We learn what we must do at both national and state levels to better position ourselves for the challenges and opportunities ahead within the community health center movement, and meet virtually with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to discuss various health policies that supports our role and contributions to the nation’s health delivery system. 

We recommend you take some time to navigate this event portal before you join us in order to get the most value out of your experience and review our Virtual Event FAQs.
