Health.Equity.Justice. the Foundation of Community Clinics
September 21, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm
Welcome to the Community Care Network of Kansas 2020 Annual Conference. While virtual this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the speakers, programs and training we have assembled for you are stronger than ever. Our theme – Health. Equity. Justice. the Foundation of Community Clinics harkens back to the origins of the health center movement in the midst of the Civil Rights movement.
Today, a renewed push for equality and social justice in all that we do underscores the necessity for such a foundational focus.
And because the four powerful days of sessions will be online, we encourage you to share these transformative days as a team.
This year’s annual conference features national, state, and regional experts guiding attendees to higher levels of understanding in areas of primary, dental, and behavioral health care. There will be keen insights for support staff, team-building that matters, and thought-provoking discussions on racial disparities and social injustice that have been laid bare in Kansas and throughout the nation by the pandemic.
Our conference is not limited to professional development, but personal growth as well. Health equity mirrors the societal standards of justice – and we have a long way to go. We will use this time together to recommit to mission, to explore the various paths in front of us, and to share the journey together. Such a unique time in history requires a unique conference. Community Care is proud to share this experience with all of you.
