PFA1 - Addressing Emerging Health Care Issues from the Governance Level: A Spotlight on Substance Use Disorder

Mar 29, 2019 8:00am ‐ Mar 29, 2019 9:30am


As many communities face a dramatic increase in the prevalence of substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder (OUD), health centers are meeting this challenge by providing much needed services to their patients. This session focuses on what health center boards need to consider given the board’s strategic, oversight, advocacy, and community-facing roles. Participants will consider a framework for structuring discussions on this topic and how to apply it in their own boardrooms.
