This section will combine two critical focus areas for health center boards:
i) Providing Oversight of Quality - Providing quality health care services is central to the mission of health centers. The governing board has a critical role in providing oversight of the quality assurance and quality improvement program. This segment defines quality and discusses the board’s oversight role related to quality.
ii) Board Member Advocacy - This segment will include an introduction to advocacy for board members.
At the conclusion, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on items they will take back to their boards or implement to make themselves a more effective board member.
