The NEPO Building Healthy Communities Summit is a unique and exciting educational event for physicians, public health professionals, and community leaders. The conference focuses on emerging health policy issues and finding solutions to tackle changes in health care as we strive to achieve health equity and reduce health disparities. The NEPO Summit provides you with opportunities to learn about key health policy issues, best practices for reducing health disparities, and cultural competency in clinical care.

The Summit inspires physicians and healthcare providers to participate in community health efforts and to be challenged to improve healthcare and the quality of life in their communities. Attendees have the opportunity to hear from nationally acclaimed thought leaders and network with colleagues.

In 2017, featured speakers included:

  • Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO, The California Endowment

  • Senator Ricardo Lara, California State Senator, District 33

  • John Baackes, CEO, L.A. Care

Building healthy communities is a key component of what community physicians are about. NEPO embraces these challenges and encourages physicians and other healthcare providers to be involved in community efforts to make California healthier for all.
